    On a cold and rainy day many years, i was not handling the loss of my son in law. Bill jumped into my truck and started to try to help me handle my grief. We started talking about my loss and shared both our losses. That ended with both of us crying . He really did help me and forever I will be grateful.

    Hello Brian and Stevie, I am sorry that I didn’t know about this sooner. I am praying for both of you and your families. If there is anything that I can do, please let me know. My memories of your Dad as a coach and mentor still resonate with me and I pray the Lord will bless you all in the coming days and months.

    I went to Cary High with Bill, Claudette, and Ralph. My sympathies to the family on your loss.

    Just wanted to say how sorry I am about your loss. I hate I couldn’t be there to pay my respects in person. William was fun to be around and always making people around him laugh. I will miss him but I know there was a big celebration in heaven. I love you all and will keep you in my prayers.
