Our love and prayers are with the family at this time. I knew Billy and Peggy when I worked Citizens Bank in Lafayette. What a wonderful couple that truly showed love and compassion for each other. He loved his music and did a beautiful job entertaining others. May God bless all of  you.                                                                                                                                                                                         Rebecca

Tim, I am so sad to hear about the passing of your dad. My dad went home to Jesus in 2013. I miss him every day but, knowing I'll see him again gives me joy. Memories that were painful at first are what get me through now. I pray God will bless your family and hold you extra close during this time. Know that friends are here thinking and praying for you. Love you, Bill and Linda Mitchell
