I knew Billy since grade school. Good old pigeon River. Of course I also knew Audrey, as we were all in school together. I hadn't seen them for many years, but thought of them often. My sympathy to your family.

I worked with Bill at Jung shoe he was the one that encouraged me to join the army and get away from the company. I’m forever grateful I’ve lived a great life and enjoyed everything so far. I needed a push out the door to find something and he definitely helped. Rest in Peace my friend.
