HAPPY FATHERS DAY BILLY BOB!
Yes, I am sure that you are wondering if really and truly my father was named Billy Bob and I have a resounding YES for you! He was not my biological father but it never felt that way to me. He stepped into my life and filled a void that was missing.
Born in a dusty, west Texas town called Baird, Texas out near Abilene, Billy Bob was raised with his three other brothers by a God-fearing mother and father. He was taught to have a strong work ethic and to take care of your family. He fulfilled both of those attributes completely.
He lived a full life and built a thriving oil business. Yes, Billy Bob, west Texas and oil! A true Texas combination! Later in his career he discovered an oil field and it was named after him, The Pierson Field. This oil field is still producing and providing my mother with a steady income.
Thank you Billy Bob for coming into my mother's life! You made her so happy and you gave us the father that we never had. You are so very missed this day and every day!
Happy Father's Day Billy Bob! I love you!
