My uncle Billy was always a positive, happy, loving, putting God first man. He will be truly missed by his friends and family. But one thing is for sure; the angels sure were singing when he entered heaven. He definitely was a faithful servant for the Lord. Uncle Billy I know you are so happy to see your mom and dad and brother and sisters in heaven. I will see you in heaven when it is my time to come home. I love you uncle Billy.
