Dear Diane and family,
I remember Billy as a child and young man. We moved away and hadn’t seen him for years and the resemblance to his dad is a joy to see. I know he had to be special to all who knew him and the memories they hold will be in their hearts forever.
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Warmest thoughts,
Aunt Bette K
