Sharing Memories of Billy Lee Dry Jr.
e-mail to John Coley

Have many fond memories of Billy on various church youth choir trips with Norman First Baptist - but mostly will remember Billy because he was the only one smart enough to bring reading glasses to the (small) 35th reunion we had a year or so ago. We had one yearbook and one pair of reading glasses and they got passed around TOGETHER!! It was a real hoot!!
