Dear Aunt Mary Lea & family. Sending you all our prayers and love. Uncle Bill was such a wonderful man full of love, care, faith and humor. I can hear him now calling us kids lovingly " Pot Lickers" . He passed on day after our Dad's birthday. So you can bet they are having a beer together now.

So sorry to see that Bill has passed. A positive spark in our world with a wife and family that lived their faith and showed their love for each other so all could see. Our world needs more people like Bill, not less, and so his passing will make our world a less joyful one for one-and-all. Well done Bill on your trip through life. Few did it better than you
