I was deeply saddened to hear that Billy had passed away. I saw him for years as one of his doctors, but considered him, as well as Ms. Sue, to be friends. Always with a smile ( and with a gift of candy), he brightened our day and left everyone feeling better about our world. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him! God bless you all and take comfort knowing that he and Sue are together again and brightening everyone’s day in Heaven.
