    We cherish our memories of Uncle Billy. We love him and will miss him dearly. He loved the Lord with all his heart. We will be in heaven with him someday soon. Our love and prayers are with the family. God bless all of you. We wish we could be there for the service but sickness in the family prevents us from coming. To Anne, the girls, and Perry we send our love.
