  1. To Jennifer and family….Couldn’t believe it when you told me we lost Billy. He always made me laugh when we talked and he always kept me supplied with cold drinks in the summer and hot cocoa in the winter. The Pittsburgh Steelers have lost their biggest fan. So sorry for your loss and will always think of him when I deliver your mail. Your mailman, John

  2. Jennifer, Sorry for your loss. Billy was a great guy. Funny and goofy. I worked with him at Edgecraft. He always had candy or something to share. Die hard Pittsburgh fan like no other. He will be missed by many. Take care in your time of grief.
