  9. A wonderful friend to me

    My sincere sympathy and love to Nell and the girls(daughters). Billy was a good husband, father and my friend. We were classmates many years ago and stayed in touch through many years. I am very sad to lose my friend but know he’s with God now and we will see each other again. I pray for God’s comfort to the family. Billy will be greatly missed.

  10. Billy was certainly one of a kind. We had some awesome conversations in the Virginia Quilting days waiting for his truck to get loaded for his weekly trip to South Carolina. I used to beg him to stow me away in the back of the truck. We will miss you Billy.
