  • Bill and I were childhood school friends.
    For me this is a “Stand By Me” moment.

    I loved his GTO his crazy driving and just him.
    He was the first to give me Vodka.
    In 1967 after high school graduation I said good bye to Billie and left to New York for school than on to work in Europe.

    Today in January of 2013, I have been located and told he has left us all.
    In my heart I will always have a place for Billie.
    I have missed him since 1967.
    Now I will have to wait until God’s Kingdom is on Earth,
    To see him and hear him laugh and give him the hug I never did.
