    If Billy lived in Tupelo and went to Lawhon School during the 1950s, I remember him well. If this is not my friend from school the family still has my sympathy. To lose a loved one in any family is hard. If this is our classmate from Lawhon he had a host of friends growing up here. My condolences to his family.
