I am so sorry to learn of Billy's passing but I know he's in a better place. Billy never met a stranger and was always the "life of the party". Loved his laughter and his sense of humor. May you all find peace knowing he is in the arms of his Heavenly Father.

Denise and family: We are so very sorry for the passing of Willie. You all are in our prayers. God's plan does not always align with our plan; but it is always perfect. We choose to remember all Wiilie's laughter and his funny jokes he was forever telling. The party in Heaven just got alot louder and certainly much livelier. God bless you all.
