Billy was a good friend of mine. I was fortunate to have Billy as a customer as a big part of his collard, cabbage, and broccoli plants were purchased from me. He was always good natured and always worked with me in a very good relationship. God Bless You Billy. I know you all will miss him.

Chad and family, our deepest sympathy to you in the loss of your dear father. I have many fond memories of Billy when he ran the produce stand. He always greeted me with a smile and we would chat about this and that. He and
Barbara Jean Bowen were always welcoming each customer. May God bless you all with comfort and peace as you grieve in your loss. Kay and Ronald Edwards, St. John
