    Billy tonight I went on line to find some Bible verses because a dear Aunt of mine passed away. I found you and wanted to leave a comment. My aunt’s name is Mary Armstrong and if you run into her up there let her know her family loves her as I’m sure your family loves you as well. Rest in peace Billy. Aaron ArmstrongMendoza
