Not sure what to say?

To the Blackwell Family, I remember Bill from the early seventies. He and I had many adventures on the road as BB and I drove a truck all over the country together. I think that Mike Barnwell said it best when he said you could always count on Bill for a laugh. He was a great guy and will be missed by all that had the pleasure of his company and companionship. His passing, I suppose makes all that knew him realize how fleeting life can be. My deepest sympathies. God bless you all.

Bill,
I will never forget the couple of times we helped each other out while I was in college in Florence. Specifically the time when I was being harassed and threatened by a few customers while I was working at the hotel. I was very fortunate to have you as a family member and friend. Rest in Peace.

Beverly and Aunt Lila, so sorry to hear about Bill. You are in my thoughts and prays.

To all of Bill's family and friends: I think we all know Bill as a friend that would give you the shirt off his back if you were in need. For many years, Bill was my best friend and running buddy. As young men we shared many adventures, some I'm sure neither one of us would want to go public. Always up for a good time and laughs--he could keep you laughing almost constantly. I often reflect back on those days with Bill and many other friends from the Florence area and remember them as some of...

Bill was one of my dearest friends. I saw him just the other day. He had ran out of gas over in east florence.
I and another friend was in my lil Miata, (two seater). We are to big guys and you know how big Bill was. He had to ride the best he could in the middle. It was a sight!
I love Bill very much, as was shocked when I heard.
Beverly, I am truly sorry for this great loss to you and your family!!!
God bless you all!

Bill was a good guy. He is resting easy now. God Bless his family.

Aunt Lila, Im so sorry for your loss.I love you and I hope if you ever need to talk you know to call me.Just remember Bill is in heaven now with Aunt Glenda and Aunt May you know they will take care of him. We love you!

BILL, I WILL MISS YOU, JUST KNOWING YOU ARE NOT HERE WHEN I WANT TO TALK TO YOU , HURTS ME. I NEVER GOT THE CHANCE TO TELL YOU I LOVE YOU. SEE YOU IN HEAVEN ONE DAY. BE AT PEACE.
LOVE YOUR COUSIN , CLO ANN

My thoughts and prayers are with you. Bill was a friend of mine from our much younger days. He was always so kind. It is so sad that his life was far to short. May God be with you all.
