So sorry for your loss. I remember Billie growing up in junior high. Did not know him well, however, enough to know (as you state above) he did have a good heart.
From time to time, I do think about people growing up and Billie is one of those. It sounds like he has a good life. Special Forces??? WOW – that tells you a lot about his character!!!
May you rest in peace Billie!
