Thank you, Ed, for the loving message. It was beautiful. Most of what I remember from our childhood is you and Billy always being covered head to toe in mud. I also remember that y’all would be hidden away somewhere when I was trying to corral Billy for supper. Every day it took him about 20 minutes to answer my increasingly frantic calls,. I suspected him of waiting on purpose to answer. Eventually he told me that he liked to ‘get me’ by making me wait before y’all appeared with grins on your face.
I miss him.

I'm very sorry Becky, Libby, and Cathy. Trey and Annie, your dad was so proud of you both. He never failed to update me on all your accomplishments. I'm sorry for your loss and hope happier memories will be what remain. Godspeed to Billy. He was my lifelong friend and I will miss him.
