Please accept my condolence and heartfelt prayers for the loss of Wilfred. When someone we love dies naturally we look for comfort, (2 Cor.1:3) says that God is the God of all comfort. It is my hope all of you will find encouragement knowing also that our loving Creator comfort all who mourns the loss of their love ones (Isaiah 61:1, 2).

It was a pleasure and a privilege working with you when you were our principal at Shiprock High School. Thank for your educational and military services. Rest in Peace.
December 30, 2013
Thank you Mr. Billey for having been part of my growing up when I needed a father figure through Junior High School. You were the only Navajo, aside from Mr. Dave Bowman, in the higher echelon of the education ladder that I looked to. You became my role model. Rest in peace.

On behalf of my parents & sisters, our condolences and prayers for Mr. Billey's family. I came to know the strength and resilience of a true warrior as those attributes emulated through my childhood friends, his girls, Barbara & Linda. A role model and gentleman of the Navajo, thank you for the kindness and wisdom you so freely shared with us all.
December 20, 2013
In my younger years, Mr. Billey was a great example to me. In my older years, Mr. Billey is still that example of kindness, courage, and faithfulness. You will be missed. My prayers to all your family.

Blessings to Mr. Billey's family. He was such a kind and knowledgable man; I appreciate his encouragement and support when I was a student and later, as an educator. He was a wonderful role model for many, and was a truly caring person. In prayer for his family and relatives.
December 20, 2013
Our deepest sympathies to the Billey family on your loss. As I knew him, he was a man of peace, fairness and goodness. Never realizing his military service as a youngster, he was an excellent mentor, coach, friend and "my dad away from home" while in school at the Mission. His leadership, kindness and friendship is reflected in the many people who crossed his path. A true Warrior in his service to our country and to our Navajo People. He will be missed but his memory will live on as we celebrate his life.

Thank You Mr. Billey for serving in the USMC as our Navajo Code Talker. I remember when I was entering Shiprock high school, I believe he was either the school counselor or Principal. I visited his office just one time after he talked to me I never went back to his office. Then in 2010, I seen him again going the aisle with the electric wheelchair. I acknowledge him and he said Miss Kinlicheenie how are you these days? He was shopping at Sam's club all the time and I would always help him. I will miss him and I know he is with Our Lord Jesus Christ. Semper Fi! Mr. Billey -your former student: Miss Judith Kinlicheenie
