I grew up spending all my school breaks and most of my summers with Pam and Billy on the ranches Billy worked on. There was no other place I'd rather be. I learned a lot from him and he and Pam truly shaped who I am today. He was one of if not the toughest man I knew. My best memories have Billy in them. I miss him greatly.
