Just wanted to leave a message of hope from the bible with you and your family from Revelation 21:3,4.

God promises here that soon death and sorrow will be done away with forever.

I am so sorry to hear about Billy. He was always smiling and so friendly. I know that Mama thought alot of him. I did not know aboout his passing until this morning. He has been very lucky to have you to care for him. I will keep you and your family in our prayers.

Dear Martha,

Our hearts are sorrowful to hear of Billy's Passing. Herschel and I would come down there if we had known in time and were able to travel, but due to our own deteriorating health and advanced age, we can only be there in spirit.

We send our love and prayers to all of you.
Irene and Herschel

I created a Memorial Page for Billy and linked him to the Memorial pages for Uncle Cecil and Aunt Lillian. Their other kids' pages are linked to Aunt Lillian and Uncle Cecil's pages too. Here is the link to Billy's page:
