    Because of Cocaine

    I am shocked that Billy Mays was found dead because he seemed like a healthy person. Then what is even more shocking is to find out that cocaine contribute to his death because who would have guessed that he was a coke head!

    I Was So Disappointed And Saddened...

    He was the best salesman ever. And you could tell that he really had happiness and joy inside, not just a camera smile. That's what made him such a joy to watch. :) Rest In Peace, Billy.
