BILLY AND I GO WAY BACK. ALTHOUGH WE HAD NOT DATED IN YEARS, WE COMMUNICATED FREQUENTLY. HE WAS A FRIEND
WHO WAS ALWAYS THERE FOR ME. I JUST WISH I HAD BEEN THERE FOR HIM.
I WAS RECOUPERATING FROM A TERRIBLE ACCIDENT 12/04/08 AND KNEW NOTHING OF HIS PASSING.
SINCE LEARNING OF THIS GREAT LOSS, I HAVE VISITED HIS GRAVE SEVERAL TIMES TO TAKE A FLOWER AND TRY TO FIND SOME PEACE.
I HURT DOWN TO MY INNER SOUL. BILLY WILL ALWAYS HAVE A SPECIAL PLACE IN MY HEART. HE WAS A GREAT MAN.
THIS WORLD SUFFERED A GREAT LOSS.
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family at this sad time.
Jerri and Duck Harrell
It’s been years since I’ve seen you, Donald. Maybe, you’ll remember who I am. I just wanted you to know, my heart goes out to you and your family.
