Ed and Deb;
I just heard, I’m so sorry. I can’t help but think of all the hours spent sitting on the wall between our houses talking to your dad while Billy worked on a car in the driveway. Or the summer nights cursing him and the noise of the air tools coming through my bedroom window when I couldn’t sleep. I hope he is at peace and is surrounded by the things he loved – cars, racehorses and your mom and dad.
Thinking of you all,
Eddie & Debbie so sorry for the loss of Billy. Didn’t know you guys well even though we were cousins, separated by the miles. Nevertheless he will be missed cause he was family. So sad at such a young age. ????
Sorry for your loss Ed and Deb, very sad news
