Send Condolence

Robin, So sorry to hear of the passing of Billy. When he had his store iin Oakland, We used to see each other almost every day, because he’d love to hang out at the record store. Whenever a new album came out, that he was interested in, he used to run down to the store so he could hear it. A good person, that says it all about Billy.

I am so very sorry to hear the news about Billy. Few in his family will recognize my name, but Billy and I shared a bar mitzvah date, Saturday, January 18, 1964 at Temple Sinai. If the family has any photos of that day, I am the funny-looking kid wearing glasses in the photo with Billy. My sincerest condolences to the family,.
