To the family of Billy, I am so sorry for your loss. Billy was my councelor when I was 16 years old. Ten years later I still think about all the good advice that he gave me. He was a true inspiration in my life. He always told me "You can be a dud or a stud" haha he always made me laugh. Not so sure I'm a stud but I have been happily married for 3 years now and have a wonderful family and a great job I have been at for going on 6 years. God Bless Billy! Brandon Thomas, July 31, 2012
