    We met Billy in 2007 when he worked at Lakeside. Billy was the most kind, generous man. He would give you the shirt off his back. In fact he and Sue let us use their RV after ours sold and we weren’t quite ready to move and Insisted we use his spare garage space to store our belongings. Billy’s passing creates a big hold in our hearts.
