Tammie,

I am so sorry for your loss of Billy Jo. I have found memories of growing up in the neighborhood with him. During his accident I spent time praying for him and was happy when he was able to go home. I am praying for you and the family now as you learn to navigate through life without him. May the Lord our God grant you peace and surround you with people who will offer you comfort.
