Deeply sorry to hear of cousin Billy's passing. Billy was a good respectful man. It was always nice to hear from him at Christmas time. He was always good to me and my family thru the years. I always enjoyed visiting him and aunt Lucy. Rest in peace till we meet again. Love and prayers to Michael, Ann, and family. Your cousin, Kim L. Reeves & Family

Michael and Family, Daddy Dan called to tell me about Billy passing away. Sorry to hear this. Please know that you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Although it has been many years since I saw you both, I still remember you as cool cousins. With Sympathy, Sandy Maltba

Sorry to hear of Billy's passing. He was one of the "good guys," and I think Billy and I had the same teachers almost every year at Victoria. I haven't seen him in many years, but I remember him fondly. I'm sure his family will miss him. Take care. Eddie DuPriest

Michael. So sorry to hear about Billy. We always enjoyed visiting with the family when we were growing up. Many years have passed since then, but I never forgot you and your brothers and all the good times we had back then. Prayers and love! Dan's x-wife and Sandy Maltba's Mother. Nelia Maltba Winters

Dearest Michael, & Family Deeply sorry we aren't going to be able to be with you and your family for the service. Mother has fell ill with the flu or something today. We had planned to come. Mother is not able to make the trip out there. We loved Billy, and we will all miss him! You are in our thoughts and prayers. We will hold on to the memories we shared over the years with Billy and Lucy. We hope to come out and visit with you later when some of the sickness down in our area dies down. We love you all! Cousin Kim, Aunt Linda

Just heard about Billy. Sorry for the loss. A group of us use CB while heading to Petersburg in late 90's. We would chat back and forth the trip. Signed Tripper
