Billy Dew has been the mailman in our neighborhood for 22 years. His route is an old fashioned one, the mailboxes are actually on the houses by the front doors. Each of us has come to know Billy even if only for a few seconds each day as he stopped by our houses and took care of our mail. Our local post office has suffered horribly from COVID and sadly Billy passed away from the virus just a few days ago. Hospitals are struggling and our healthcare providers are exhausted. This illness is certainly not a hoax and not political. People in the post office are doing their best in a difficult environment as are so many others on the frontlines of our social and economic infrastructure. Well Done, Billy Dew. May you Rest In Peace.
Today, the local Post Office honored Billy with a memorial parade along the street of Billy's route. Many of us turned out to honor his service and his memory.
