So dear Classmates,

We post another passing of one of our own.  Everytime, now, it seems that when I open my yearbook and look at a page, there is someone, either a teacher or a classmate that has passed on.  Very sobering.  But as someone said to me recently, life is forward moving, so just keep trying to make a positive difference.  Such wise advice to incorporate in one's life.

May Billy rest in eternal peace.  Comfort and prayers for the family and friends.
