    So sorry Mary about Billy. Didn’t know about his passing until I saw Dan Fraley’s post. Don’t know if we will get to come over there but you and the family are in our thoughts and prayers. Love you, Clyde Stiltner and family.

    I am really sorry about Billy. I always thought of him as one of the family uncles that helped pull us together and as a great role model for us all. Lynnette and I have you in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
