Words alone cannot adequately express what our hearts are feeling. We extend our sincere sympathy to your family. Billy will be forever missed but his spirit will remain within our hearts. He was a no nonsense type of guy, but I loved his sense of humor. I guess you could say I loved everything about him. Rest easy brother and give Dad, Pudgie and Bobby hugs I love you brother.
