I just came across Billy's obituary today.
He was such a good man. Billy was a close friend to my brother & myself in our school days.
I'm so very sorry for the family's loss.
Praying for your peace & comfort during this heartbreaking time. May you find comfort in knowing that even in Billy's younger years, he was a honorable person & friend.
Rest in God's loving arms, ole friend.

Deepest sympathy,
Margie James Cates
