  1. I didn’t realize how much he looks like Margie until I saw this photo. Steve and I were best friends when they lived in Kenova. I eventually lost touch with the family when they moved to KY. I spent a lot of time at the Scott house and still think of them all fondly. Billy was only slightly older so we usually all hung out together. They had some 45 records of “Daddy Frank” and “I Want To Have My Operation On TV. I remember one time when Steve and Billy and I caught a black widow spider in some bushes on Beech St. They took me to Princeland before it was developed and we would fish for bass and bluegill in the ponds left over from old mining operations. I remember their uncle Tater Bug used to visit and he was good and building and fixing things. I wish that I had been able to visit with Billy as an adult to talk about old times. My prayers go out for the family.
