Oh my what can i say about sweet Billy. I've known him for over 15 years and I am very appreciative of our banter over the years. He was quite the ladies man and had lots of "girlfriends" that he promised to marry once his daughter would allow it.
He always had time to tell you a story, tell you a joke or pick on you.
He played lots of jokes on people and you couldn't help but smile when you saw him.
He worked everyday and I strive to leave behind such an impressive legacy of love and laughter.

Bill was such an awesome and sweet man! So glad that I the chance to know him and grew up knowing him as Papaw Bill through my child hood years. We shared the same birthday and after running into each other at Mom’s Country Kitchen some years later, where he would come everyday for a cup of coffee, he would call and sing Happy Birthday to me and invite me out for Birthday dinner. My prayers are going out to his family.
