    The tide recedes and leaves bright seashells on the land. The sun goes down but a man with a smile is walking in the sand. The music may have stopped, yet you can hear it's breezy song. For every memory that passes like the tide, billy will never be gone. He says if you come to Lumina in search of me I can be found down by the pier, down by the sea, feet in the surf, wind blowing my blonde hair Wrightsville Beach and me and inseparable pair. - Sabrena

    Johnny & Family, I was deeply shocked to hear of Billy's death, it came as quite a shock to me. I always thought alot of Billy and as you know, we all shared many good times in our earlier years;either playing ball or let's just say "boys being boys", we really did some crazy stuff but we had so much fun doing it. Billy always had that heart-felt hand shake and smile that let me know I was with my friend, always. I'm going to miss him, but we'll all be together again one day. Know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers and I'm there in spirit with you. Good bye my "Old Friend", I'm gonna miss you.
