Rhonda, Rene' and all the family, I am so sorry about Billy's passing, I'm so sorry I won't be able to attend the services I'm facing surgery & Debbie's been here 17 mo. will find out tomorrow if she can have surgery for cancer of the esopagus. Your family was special to us. I don't have any sisters or cousins now and they were like family.
