"His dimples and infectious smile, light-hearted attitude, and boyish charisma is what led Billy to have so many wonderful memories to share."

What a perfect description of Billy! I have wonderful memories of Billy and I growing up in church, attending Southport High, and going off to college at Indiana State. Condolences to his family and may he rest in peace.

I would like to offer my sympathy. Mr. Osborne was my English teacher in high school. He was the type of person who would look for the very best in his students and get the very best out of you. He knew how to bond with people and he could tell what you needed help with and he knew how to help. He was a great teacher.
