  6. What a great guy Billy was! He loved his children and family so much, you could always hear it in his voice when he spoke about them. He had such a love for the simple things in life; the outdoors, grilling, the beauty of nature, music and of course fishing! I know he is with OUR LORD now. No doubt in my mind. Billy and I had many conversations about The Lord and it warms my heart knowing he had accepted Jesus as his Lord and Savior. It still breaks my heart to know that he is gone and that I can’t text or call him but it eases my pain knowing he is in a much better place. Until we meet again my friend….much love.
