Billy, my only brother. We had some great times and memories working on the farm for Uncle Rodger picking tomatoes and beans. We talked about walking the Appalachian Trail and High Rock. I feel that we got closer as brothers in the past few years riding to Thurmont Cemetery to Mom and Dads grave, showing me the schools were you taught and going to your favorite hot dog restaurant in Chambersburg. The long rides at Christmas to and from Mark and Megan's in West Virginia gave us time to talk about world events, your military service, how you met Marion, and working together at the Acme store in Littlestown Pa. You were always interested and concerned how your sister Dottie was doing and family, how Dollye was feeling, all my children, grandchildren, great grandchildren and our relatives. You spoke highly about your church and Menno Haven/Chambers Point.
The funeral was perfect, well planned and well attended with family, relatives and good weather.
I will miss you, but we will meet again when the Lord calls me home.
