My condolences to the family. I haven't seen billy in a very long time and Roger Mathis called me to let me know we'd lost him a week or so ago. Although we had fallen out of touch, it still hurts to lose a friend, especially someone like Billy. We had some wild times and even to this day I still tell stories about times we shared and even pass along stories others have told me about Billy. I will always remember him and always cherish the time I got to spend with him. Goodbye buddy, I love ya lots.
