I recall the time Billy and Jim Sims turned our front yard, at the house on Enfield, into a motocross track. They rode til they built up berms in the front yard that had to be three foot high. Looking back it was pretty cool, but for some reason dad (Pappy) didn’t think it was as cool as I did...LOL. Love you brother....give mom a hug for us and have her make you some of her famous rolls.

Bought a riding mower, came home one night and it did not work, wondered why, seems like someone used it as a NASCAR racer, I wonder who?..

R.I.P, my son, You will not grow old as we that are left grow old, age will not worry you, or will the years condemn, At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember you with love..
Sending prayers to Billy and Logan, we are thinking of you all and family during this time. Billy, Caran, Garrett and Clay Lindsey

Wow. I was scrolling through to find my dad’s obituary from January and saw this. I grew up on Skyview just down the street from Billy. My heart goes out to the family. God bless.
