Big Bill, as I called him as a kid, surely used the gifts God gave him to there fullest. I am so thankful that my childhood was filled with such good music! To his family, Judy, Bill, Jr and John and sisters Shirley and Nancy I pray the sound to your ear brings a peace to your soul. Rest easy dear cousin..
