    Billy Ray Tyner, My Uncle Billy, I will surely going to miss you, I have a lot of good memories of you and you will always be in my heart. I remember learning to walk in your shoes when I was little and you dancing me on your shoes. How you loved bean and bacon soup, you would give me a taste I thought that was so good and you would laugh. There will never be another Uncle Billy in my life but you! I will always think of you and love my memories of you. You are at peace and with our Lord until we see each other keep on dancing love your niece! Sug
