I want to thank you for your message left at my Bio. - I just wished I had met Billy in 2006 when I came to Kansas City to visit Erica Green's gravesite. On another visit in 2009, I of course learned of his passing. That kind of got this activity going about his memorial on this site. Also, thanks for posting the 2 photos on his memorial- that puts another personal touch to the site ......
Love to you and your family - Kenneth Hudson

Your Legacy Lives On
You proved to be such a remarkable Man. You were gifted with so many awesome attributes that I admire: leadership, responsibility, perseverance, determination dependability & commitment.

History: The Stegall family (grandma and the 10 children) relocated from Newnan to Atlanta (English Ave.) in 1964. My Moma relocated from Thomaston to Atlanta (English Ave.) to live with Aunt Dot in 1967. You meet my Moma, married her and took care of my eldest sister. Next, your union produced Donna, Junior (Billy Howard Stegall, Jr.—your name sake) and finally me in 1973. Long history story short, you joined the military at a young age and was off to fight for the country during wars throughout this process (Vietnam and Korean tours of duty). You and Moma divorced while I was a very young, however, your impact on our lives never faltered. You also made it clear to everyone that you loved my Moma and that you would always be a call away.

Treasured memories: Every time you came home to Georgia, you made it clear that we were the Apple's of your eye. You clearly adored Donna and she was your Princess!!!!! You showed us off to everyone that would listen and later in life we returned the favor by being there when you faced medical complications (agent orange exposure and cancer) that eventually ended your time on earth. As an adult, I found the nerves to ask you what happened to you and my Moma and you told me "what happened between your mom and I is non of your concern". You made it clear that all I needed to know was that both of you loved us. I was so proud to have you attend my wedding in 2001. The look on your face as you proudly watched your baby boy marry his college sweetheart was priceless.

Update since your departure from Earth: Kim and I had another beautiful daughter in 2007; Donna got married in Jamaica in 2008, got pregnant on the honeymoon and gave birth to your handsome grandson in March of 2009. Donna and I started our Doctor of Education program in July of 2011 and should be completed in 2014. Jr.'s oldest daughter graduated from High School with honors this past summer. Finally, as of July 1, 2012, I ‘ve been promoted to a building level elementary principal.

We miss you dearly and are so very proud to have your bloodline running through our veins. Thank you for being exactly who God made you to be and for that we are eternally grateful.

Your Family — The Stegall's
