Some of you people can be so heartless and disrespectful. Let his son twitter as much as he wants to I mean he just lost his dad for God's sake maybe he needs his friends on twitter, and let his family do what they need. Billy Mays never did anything like some of these other stupid celebrities, he seemed to be a genuine, classy, funny man and a great person. Don't be such jerk offs. Have some freaking respect. RIP Billy Mays, I am praying for all of your family, I hope everything works out for them, and I hope they aren't affected by the stupid idiotic people that say things! May God be with you.

Their shirts are different shades of blue. That wouldn't have happened if they'd used OxyClean!

Billy's death had sadden me more than any public figure in a very long time. I watch his new show pitchmen form the start and he really grew on me. I could see he had a huge heart and was just full of life.

I hope they keep pitchmen going. Won't be the same without Billy but it was a great show and I think it can still be great.

Did the funeral include pitches for CasketMaster, Corpse-Away, or Home Crematorium?

I was lucky enough to work with him at HSN...he was the nicest person and such a pleasure to be around. I was completely shocked hearing the news..., he was good hearted and had a super nice family! He was humble and worked his ass off for everything he had!

Billy Mays was a fat, bloated, greedy little man who hocked unnecessary products to bored, unintelligent housewives with way too much time on their hands. Anybody who thinks he contributed anything whatsoever to society probably also thinks Britney Spears is a brilliant, misunderstood artiste!

What a way to go: in your sleep! God wanted him for some reason and gave him an easy out.
I believe his son is reaching out to get some attention he's been missing, and because his father just died, and he doesn't know what to do. May God Bless Us All, Everyone! xo

The blue shirts are a nice tribute to Billy. If you watched Pitchmen, you knew how important Billy's "uniform" was to what he did. I loved watching Billy and Sully every week, and I will miss that. Billy really seemed like a genuine guy. Michael Jackson's death? *shrug* Not a shocker. But, I have been saddened by Billy's sudden death all week. RIP Billy...your family is in my thoughts and prayers.
