I will miss you buddy. As nice a person as I have ever known. I had thought about calling to talk with you probably around your time of passing but got sidetracked. We had many a good chat though. Bon voyage
Brother Bill was a very good friend and I never heard anything bad said about him. He was and is an inspiration and a blessing to me. It makes me feel sad to hear about his passing but I know without a shadow of a doubt that Bill is rejoicing with Jesus in Heaven.
I first met Bill in 3rd grade around 1964. Bill was soft spoken and truly a Christian man. I never heard of anything bad about him and I consider Brother Bill a close friend. God bless you my friend and I will see you in Heaven.
