  4. I met Billy in Cape Coral and he was working. He came up to me and said Thank you for your Service. That was really kind of him. Then he looked at my 20 10 Dodge Challenger and he asked me if he could sit in it. I said sure and he loved it. Then jokingly ask if I wanted a KIA. I said no thanks. The brand new Challenger was my college gift for graduating with Suma Cum Ladey. RIP Billy. Thank you for being a kind person and helping out the community. God Bless you and your family.
