    Billy and I were friends from the age of 12 on and together we went to many parties, played chess, poker, watched wrestling on Saturdays and always had a good time together. He had a dry sense of humor that grew on me. He introduced me to some of his friends and he was friendly with some of my friends. We had Breakfast about a year ago and spent about 2-3 hours just catching up which was wonderful.
    I will miss him and Sherri, Danielle, Ilesha & Jessica and the Wolf Family I offer my heartfelt condolences to you all.
