I have lived in Litchfield my entire life and his mother was a second mother to me; I called her Mama Mary. Not only did she take care of me and my sister Sally when my grandmother had to be away, I saw her every day when she was the Chief Cook at the Litchfield Grammar School. I got to know Billy and looked up to him and his sisters, Marion and Barbara. I was fortunate to see Billy again, and to meet Fran at a Litchfield Historical Society meeting last year. Fran, I am so sorry for your loss, the loss of another Litchfield native.
