Condolences to the family for my Uncle Billy. So sad to hear of his passing. Many special memories from my childhood and even in later years. One special memory was when Gary and I came to his home for our family gathering at Christmas time and he sent boiled peanuts home with us and whispered to us not to tell the others. Uncle Billy was a unique guy who will be missed by many. RIP! Sorry we couldn’t attend the service.
