To the Family To the Family I would like to express my deepest sympathy to each of you. May these words of Christ Jesus be of comfort to you. He states that all those in the memorial tombs (graves) will hear his voice and come out. (John 5:28,29) Our Creator Jehovah God promisies us a very optimistic future for he tells us that he is going to wipe away the tears of sorrow from our eyes forever and death will be no more. (Revelation 21:3-5) Again I extend my condolences to you. May the God of all comfort comfort you.

I was very sorry to hear about Billy. I have known Billy's family ever since I can remember, having grown up on Old Ruleville Road. I never got the chance to thank him for all the things that he did for my mother, Elizabeth White. I know she appreciated the things he did and all of her family does as well. Sincerely, Thomas White and Family

Linda and Family, You are all in my thoughts and prayers. I visited with Billy for quite a while at your dad's funeral. As always, he was good for a laugh or two. He realized how precious life was and seemed to be living it to the fullest. I wish there was something I could do to take away your pain... I love you all! Kay
