    I’m very sadden in hearing Billy passing. I remember the family gatherings on the farm with him and Marilyn then when they had the feed mill in town Billy and Marilyn always made me feel special while I was there. As I got older, I’d see Bullying his Bar (Billy’s) we always get to get her an talk about family an how many times my grand parents would bring me over an me an Connie play.Billy new my mother that I never met an he told me stories that I never knew. My father wasn’t in my life Bill knew that. He told me once that he’d be my father an I’ll always believed that. I could always feel the love he gave. I for one will miss him dearly! For when we ever meet he was so surprise an happy that we talk together. He always was wondering how my life was an I could tell he was concern about me. He was a angel of my life R.I.P. Billy. Give Marilyn a HUG from Tommy for I Miss her. Dearly Also, My Prayers go out to Doug and Connie I would of been there but nobody told me!
