    Sad.. Ten years of going to school together, all that time on the school bus, being raised on a farm —- nothing like it.

    To the Stewart Family, I am so saddened to learn of Billy's passing. We were great friends in our high school days with many late night adventures and playing in band together. After high school life took us in different directions but I had great hopes that one of these days we could get together and have a grand visit. Perhaps in the afterlife now. Deepest Sympathy, Jim Sturges
