Carole and Family, I am sorry to read about the passing of your Dad. We were old neighbors of your family on Teakwood Drive in Windsor Woods and your parents watched as Brenda raised our sons Tommy and Jeffery. After we moved in the mid 80's our lives took different paths. I know what your family is going through as I lost my father this past May and My Wife, Brenda on August 27. My prayers are with you and your Family during this time of sorrow and remember the Great Memories that I sure you have of your Dad because MEMORIES ARE FOREVER and they can never be taken away from you. With our deepest sympathy, Dale , Thomas & Jeffrey Murray

I'd like to pass on mu condolences to the family of Billy. I worked for Billy at Parks & Recreation. He saw potential in me & taught me a lot about how important a good work ethic was and under his guidance and leadership help mold me into the supervisor I am today. I truly owe Billy for what I learned from him and he'll be missed dearly.

Take confort that he is together again with his beloved Kathy, and that you were a caring and wonderful Daughter to the both of them when they needed you most. He will be missed here by many, but this also now completes the "Old Foursome" of Harold, George,and Perry together again playing that endless round of golf in Heaven.
