Our deepest sympathy goes out to Barb and the family. Billy was a damn good softball player and he will be missed. Thoughts of him immediately make me smile, and even though we didn't see him often, there were times in the past when we were always together and he really made you feel like you were his and Barb's family. He had a warmth about him and certainly left an impression on my family & I. Our thoughts and prayers are with you Barb and Cliff and all of those that knew him!
