Please accept my sincere condolences in your loss of Billy. Billy and I were close friends in the 7th grade at Hickory Tavern School. I only met him one time since then in Greenwood several years ago .I was one year older than Billy but we were great friends. May he rest in peace and may your days ahead be brighter. May God bless all of you and keep you safe. James Earle Tumblin Jr Boyds Mill Pond Rd. Laurens, SC.
