Dear Pat and Judy,
Thank you for sharing your precious Billy with us at Albany High School. I have such wonderful memories of Billy working hard in class but especially, all the fun times we had at Special Olympics practices and events. I will always remember his beautiful smile and how he brightened my day just be being there. He truly is one of God’s special angels.
