We were so saddened to hear of Billy's passing, we had heard he was sick but wasn't informed beyond that. Diane said she always remembers Billy's laugh and how it was contagious making her want to laugh as well. Don enjoyed the times he was able to spend around Billy and the trips to deer camp. Juanita was also sad to hear the news, she as well is very ill, living in Fort Smith. We know that we have the blessed hope of being together once again after our passing in heaven. We were so glad to hear Billy had accepted Jesus as his Lord and Saviour, in that lies our hope. Francis we are holding you and the family up in our prayers and pray God strengthens you all through this ordeal.
