"My dad was my best friend, he was my confidant, he was my buddy, my pal, my mentor," Billy Ray says. "He was everything a dad could ever be to a boy and to a man."
That day, Billy Ray says, would be spent riding horses. "My dad was a horse whisperer. I loved to go out and just ride with my dad and watch him ride in the wind," he says. "It was the greatest joy in the world."
