  1. Marvin Thews

    David, Kelly, and family,

    I was so sorry to hear of Billy’s death. I have so many fond memories of of him over the years especially playing golf with your grandfather and him in Clarksville. I rarely saw him without a smile on his face, and I considered him truly a cherished family member. He and Rheta had a special marriage, and I know you are proud to be their legacy.
    I had minor surgery yesterday and I’m sorry I won’t be able to be there for the funeral, but I definitely have you in my prayers.
