I'm still trying to deal with the shock of his passing. Me and Billy go way back. I was his Platoon Sgt for awhile with the 655TC. I could always count on him in any situation. He always had my back. I remember teasing him every football season about Alabama kicking Arkansas butt. Rest in peace my friend and thanks for the memories.
