Dear Sara, only got to talk to Billy when I needed to talk to you and he was patient and kind. My condolences to you and your family, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Love Jonelle

I'm so very sorry, Sara. Billy was always patient and good-humored with me the many times I called looking for you and ended up chatting with him. He knew I was just another crazy dog person, but he courteously never let on, and never made me feel like I was bothering him when I probably was. I wish I had gotten to know him better. Sending my deepest sympathy to you and your family. Diane
