My heart is sad for the loss of a really great friend. I got to know the family pretty well during the late 70's and early 80's. I grew up with Billy's uncle Roger and thought the world of the family. I had never known dedication until I met Sheila. Her love and devotion to her sons was immense and continues to this day. I think of Ricky a lot especially when I go to Camp. The Boys Club was home and we were all kin. We have lost a family member. I did not know Billy had Cancer. I hope his suffering is over and he can rest in peace. With the utmost love and respect I remain Tootie.
