Pooker, I'm SOOOOOOO sorry for what's happened to Billy. I remember coming to the bar all the time and hearing you ALWAYS talk about Billy. I know you loved him very much. We may never know all the Who's, What's, Where's, When's, Why's and How 's and that what's makes it even tougher. And..with time, you and your family will heal as Billy may be gone; however, HE'LL NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER BE FORGOTTEN. Billy will live in our hearts always & Forever as Billy will have all you in his heart as well. Again....I'm truly sorry about Billy & My deepest, most sincere, thoughts and prayer's go out to you and Bridgett and..... to both of your families. God Bless you guys! Kelli Jo Zoller
