I am so sorry for your loss. I always enjoyed talking about Oklahoma football with Him at our family reunion. I never forgot, we went searching for a Tv that was not being used used for watching,Alabama,Auburn or Florida State so we could watch our beloved Oklahoma Sooners. God bless.

Billy was a cousin that I didn't know very well when I was younger but got to know him and Jeannie in the past few years and enjoyed visiting with them at our family reunions on Labor Day Weekends. I would have to say he was one of our best looking cousins! Sharon Dugan, Huntsville, Al.

So sorry for your loss. Bill was such a sweet and handsome guy. I remember when he used to come to see Dr. Orme and was always so pleasant. May your family cherish the many memories. You will all be in our prayers. Karen and Gary York

Bill was part of my young life when he visited my parents. As a cousin, he was always part of my life, even though miles separated us. It was always a treat to visit with him when the family got together. He was a sweet guy and very handsome. May God comfort you during your loss.

He was such a good man. My thoughts and prayers are with his family.

Leisa and family i am so sorry for your loss of a wonderful man. Many prayers for you and the family.

Knowing Bill as extended family for 30+ years, he will be missed greatly but fondly remembered!
