Billy Joe was a wonderful brother-in-law. He was a soft spoken, sweet, kind, loving, gentle, and helpful person. He was fun to be around. He was a gracious host to many of our family gatherings. He was always doing good things for our family. He was an exceptional son-in-law to my mother always helping fulfill needs she may have had. Family gatherings will never be the same without him. He was greatly appreciated and dearly loved. He will be sorely missed.
