To Ola and Family,
It was with great shock and sadness that I learned of Billy’s sudden death. He and I were part of the Barton High School Class of 1971. There has never been a time in all the years of going to school together and just seeing Billy on my visits “home” , that he did not exemplify the true meaning of kindness, concern and friendship… never failing to ask how I am or about my Mom’s health; always SO caring! My prayers go with all of you.. DeRee… I am so Very sorry my friend!
Most Sincerely,
Cathy Muscalino Harris
