RIP Billy Mays

I'm totally bummed by the loss of Billy Mays today (Sunday). Here's the link to the story about his death and the statement from the Discovery Channel.

One of my best autographs is from Billy - I was a huge fan of his and the "Pitchmen" show.

My thoughts and prayers are with his family and the Discovery Channel "Pitchmen" team.

If you're on twitter, you can send condolences message to @YoungBillyMays (his son) and Pitchmen teammates @ArwenAnaNg and @KingSully.

I am stunned to hear of his passing. I really enjoyed watching him in infomercials for items such as Kaboom!, Mighty MendIt, Hercules Hooks, and Big City Sliders, among others. His pitches really encouraged me to buy Kaboom!, Mighty MendIt, and Hercules Hooks. RIP

I have always admired him. I feel so uncomfortable and lost knowing he's dead. I will really miss him. I am currently looking for an autographed photo or something. I will always miss him. I have always wanted his beard ;) . My extreme condolences to his family. Even if in a comedic way, he has definitely changed the world. I will always miss you, Billy. RIP.
