The Billy Schulz Memorial Prayer Garden Fund

We have had so many people ask us what we would like in lieu of flowers as a Memorial for Billy Schulz. I am putting the information here because I cannot possibly answer all of the requests.

Since the First Broad Street United Methodist Church in Kingsport, Tennessee was such a big part of Billy’s life and because we would love to have a living memorial for Billy that can be shared by others, we have established a fund with the church that will be dedicated to the construction of a prayer garden in Billy’s memory.

Billy loved his church and one of his main joys in life was being an usher for the services.

Billy’s memorial service will be held at the church at 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 8. I don’t think the venue will be large enough. People are coming from all over the country.

 Donations for the garden may be sent to:

First Broad St. UMC

100 E. Church Circle

Kingsport, Tn. 37660

A plaque will be erected listing all donors

 Billy’s obituary may be found on Billy’s web blog, The Saddest Post in the Whole Wide World

I lost my vocal cords a while back due to throat cancer. The laryngectomy sent me on a quest to find and learn to use my new, altered voice. I am able to talk now with a really small and neat new prosthesis. My writing reflects what I have learned in my search for a voice. My site publishes a daily motivational quote and a personal comment. I write an article a week for my blog, which deals with a lot of the things that I do in the garden. I am also the author of Requiem for a Redneck and the new Redemption for a Redneck--novels portraying the lives and doings of folks around the north Georgia hills. I have an English Education degree from the University of Georgia and very happily married to the lovely Dekie Hicks. You may enjoy my daily Quotes and Notes at
