    My love, thoughts and prayers are going out to “Uncle Billys” family and friends. In the last six years or so since I have known him, he quickly gained my respect and adoration for being such a witty, strong and compassionate man, a lot like my own father. I will miss him immensley.

    Billy Lawson, may you rest in peace. Prayers of thanksgiving to God for all the family and friends who knew him, worked with him and loved him. He was wise, funny and always honest with me from the time I met him. His work ethic has stayed with me for my entire adult life. I am so grateful to have known Billy. My deepest condolences to Mrs. Lawson and his family.
