  • My condolences are sent to Brigitte, Janine, Grace, and all of the bereaved family. I’ve always told Billy Boy that: “You think that you are my father, but you are at least my Big Brother”. I will always remember our trips all over the country to sporting events and to the city of New Orleans. I also appreciate all of the advice and all of the fatherly guidance that you have always provided to me. I will miss you forever, but I’ve learned in this life that we must always “accept God’s will.” I love you man! Until we meet again, rest in power because that’s all that you know. Kisses!
