  1. As children Billy was an important part of our neighborhood family, we remained good friends through the years. He had a loving and generous heart with a smile that could brighten a room. Billy and mother again can enjoy eating potica, now at the table of the Lord. His passing will leave a void and he will be missed. May God Bless and comfort you!
