    Dear Linda~ I have been thinking of you constantly since I learned of Billy's death. It just seems surreal. You have been such a splendid wife and caregiver for decades. It just seems as though he should be here and handsome like he once was. He always had a mischievous look like he was thinking something fun. You and Billy's family & friends shared SO many wonderful memories. May those memories and the kind thoughts and words of loved ones give you solace at this difficult time.
