To the family of Tom Billings. I first meet Tom when we was in the service together. We was together the hole time. We even come home the same time. He was a good friend at the time we was together. The summer of 72 was the last time seen him. Always wanted to get down to see him to see what he had been up to. And now I regret not doing that. I'm sorry for your loss. Michael J. Garrels Kahoka,mo.
