My thoughts and prayers have been with the Laird family for the past several weeks. The selfishness in me wanted other young coaches to be able to learn the way I did from the very best there was in the business. Knowing that we have no control.....I have settled in my mind that there will still be young coaches learning from the ones that learned from the best there was. It still will never be the same. "Enjoy what you do because it's a lot more fun for everybody" Thanks Coach! You'll be a part of me for the rest of my life. Thinking of the Laird family! Jeff McBride

Neil left a message on June 15, 2015:
I am sorry to hear about the passing of Billy. I offer my condolences to the family during your time of bereavement. The Bible is very comforting during times like this because God knows our pain. He has made promises regarding our loved ones at Isaiah 26:19 and Revelation 21:3,4. Soon, all things causing pain including death will be done away with on earth. May you find the strength to endure in the days ahead.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Billy was one of my first "Sports Hero's" learned lots from his example - He will be missed but I will not hesitate to use his example towards life to young people fighting for a place in life..

As we progress through our lifetimes we rarely encounter a long time friend like Billy Earl. I remember our youth baseball years around Laird's Grocery and the many happy times we all had together. All the Annison's in Jackson MS send our condolences and prayers to Brenda and their family.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Being just six months younger and going to Woodlawn at the same time as Billy, makes me realize just how precious, and perhaps short, life really is. He had a terrific game plan and played the real game well. My thoughts and prayers are for his family. Go Knight!!
