Billy Lynn... one of the best memories I have of you and I together is when you were little, before you started school, and whenever you saw me you would come beat me up! It made you smile and it was so much fun watching you laugh and just be you. I love you more than you might realize Billy, forever and always I will love you cuz! Watch over us all and keep us all smiling...

Oh billy. So many memories. Where could i even start? I will never forget baking you guy cookies and getting you twelve packs of mountain dew. I remember asking you what your dream in life answered me to own a double wide and a mud bogging pit. I remember you in so many ways that i couldn't even write them all. My heart is heavy without you here. My kids, grandkids, and I all loved you like one of our own. You were that special spark in our lives. Miss you kid. I frickin miss you.

We talked and really got to know each other, even though we never had the opportunity of getting to hangout, you were always the life of the party from what everyone has said. I wish I would've had the chance of getting to hangout with you but I'm sure we will in another life. Rest easy and live life up there!

Even though I didn't know you personally that well, my sons Michael and Steven did. They have told me what am awesome kid you were and by what I've heard from others I know it is true. Everytime I had ever seen you, you always had a smile on your face that could light up a room. The world has lost an incredible young man, but heaven has gained a beautiful angel. Fly high above and look down on us often. Love and hugs from the Pierce family

I remember a few years ago when I was having a difficult time, so you called me and sang Firework by Katy Perry to me until we were both cracking up. I miss those days. I'm going to miss you Billy. This doesn't feel real. Love you Billy, for eternity.

Billy Lynn, it has yet to sink in that you are no longer here.. I can't even begin to understand why.. You were always so happy! Everytime I seen you, you were smiling, laughing, and just all around a happy person. I'll never forget the first time you ran up to the car, at the skatepark, and told me I was like your sister and you loved me.. That'll be one thing that sticks in my mind for the rest of my days! I miss you so much.. I love you Billy. Rest peacefully my darling.

Such a beautiful boy, inside and out. I adored Billy, my heart is hurting for those who have loved and lost this very special young man. I know in my heart that Billy is with Jesus, no more hurt, no more pain. Rest in peace sweet Billy.

Billy's family is in my thoughts and prayers. His death has had a profound effect on so many of his friends and his family can take pride in the joy that Billy brought to so many. I know that just hearing his name would put a smile on my face. He delighted in so many things and his smile showed his joy. I am so sorry that his light is no longer shining here, but I am certain he is delighting those who went before him.
