    Sorry to learn of Billy’s passing. He was a long-time friend and co-worker at Scovill.

    Lifting the family up in prayer.

    So sorry to read the passing of Billy. I always thought a lot of him. I can remember that my Grandparents (Cunningham) and his parents had farms that joined each other and Billy would come over to see my uncle (Doug) and they would ride horses together. Even though Doug didn’t know sign language, he and Billy always seemed to communicate. Sending my deepest sympathy and praying for God’s comfort to each of you.
    Blessings to all the family.

    So sorry to hear of Billy’s death. Always thought a lot of him. We always had a conversion with his little note book. Just saw him a few weeks ago at Marvin’s.
    Blessings to all the family.
