  8. My memories of Billy: In my youth our family went to Pueblo to visit his family. What a wonderful time we had playing in the basement of his parents home, it seemed like we were on the adventure of a lifetime. The time he lived in San Cristobal New Mexico we had a wonderful time catching up with time passed over a number of beers. Young men coming of age. Lastly, when I was in my motorcycle accident, and at a time of terrible discomfort, I received a call from Billy. His message to me was so positive and encouraging. Rest in Peace Cousin.
