Well, today marks thirty years that Billy and the other two officers were killed. It has been a hard road with out him. I had to learn to carry the load by myself. But through my family's support and two wonderful boys the road got easier as time passed. No one or no thing could ever replace Billy because he was my best friend. Billy had a very deep love for his boys. The lost of him hurt them in their lives for many years. Today, I think that Billy will look down from heaven and smile because the boys have grown into fine adults.

Billy was my cousin. His mother and my grandfather where brother and sister. I remember as a child when he came to visit thinking he was such a big man!!! He looked so much like my grandfather when he was a young man. I would like to get in touch with his sons if anyone knows how I would do that. My grandparents have both past and since I have become older family has become so important there is not many of us left. I have lots of old family pictures I think they might like to have of there dad. Please help!

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.
