I was so shocked and saddened to hear Billy had passed. I thought very highly of him. He was always so kind and compassionate and he always made me laugh. Our community has a hole now. But our loss is Gods gain.
Debra, Nick and family you are loved and prayed for. May Gods hands of comfort be upon you.
