    William, God rest your soul. Before you got so sick back when I still lived in Texas, we had some wonderful times. My daughters Holly, Macy and I have some great memories of being with you out at your Orangefield logcabin. You made us all laugh and boy,..., could you cook!! We loved your cookin'! You could make a mean brisket on that big black pit outside. Rest in peace William, you are finally free!

    William, my love for you will live on forever in my heart. You were my only brother and to me you were awesome unless you were on a roll...lol.. you made me laugh so hard I cried, you were truly the life of our party. You knew us girls adored you and when you thought of the right time you bragged about it. I can't imagine how exstatic Mother was when you were born after 4 girls and finally a boy, then three more girls after you. I'm going to miss you big time. Forever in my heart, I love you William, your sister, Peggy
