    I know I am late, and I am so sorry to hear of this loss. Billy was a friend and coworker of my mother and fathers. (Sam & Nancy Jarvis) I have heard lots of stories and have very fond memories of all of the glass plant crew. Prayer and love to all of the friends and family. It is so hard to hear of another good one gone.
