Sad to hear of the passing of Billy, he was always a great friend to me, I know he will be greatly missed. He was a customer to me for over thirty years and we always put our friendship ahead of business. My deepest sympathy to the family.

Such a sweet and encouraging man will truly be missed. I am so thankful that God allowed him to be in my life and the life of those in my family. I never knew what Mr. Bill may say next; he kept a smile on my face every time I saw him. I love this family so much; God loves you even more! It is my prayer that you all will feel God's presence all the more as you continue life here on earth without him.
