So sorry about Billy. He was very friendly and liked to talk and enjoyed his family. Praying for Mary and family for strength, comfort and peace now and in the days ahead. A note between Mary and myself was the "purple slaw" he made when he cooked while Mary and I fished. We had lots of memories together. Go rest high on that mountain Billy, your work on earth is done. Rest in God's arms. Hugs to the family.
