My condolences to Libby and the family. I have fond memories of playing with the Martin kids way back when they lived in Waldron. Billy was a sweet kid. Glad I got to see him a few years ago. RIP Billy.

I was very sorry to hear about your loss.
It doesn’t seem that long ago that we were all young children playing together on Van Avenue.
Know that my heart aches for your family as you go through this difficult time.
May God comfort you all.
