    Billy was such a big part of my life years ago. I have great memories of him and the fun times we had in Walterboro. I know he had a great reunion with Johnny and many of our friends who have gone before us.

    Someone once said, “Perhaps there aren’t stars in the sky at night…only holes in the floor of heaven where our loved ones can watch over us!”

    My heartfelt sympathy goes out to his family.
