    I have many memories of Uncle Bill growing up. From living with us in California to when him and my uncle Freddie drove with me from California to El Campo to stay with grandparents. Then another time back to Calif. Uncle Bill was a great cook, gardener, hard worker. I’m sorry I hadn’t got to visit with him more these last years. We did have a good visit at his Uncle’s 100th birthday a few years ago. RIP Uncle Bill till we meet again! 💜💜
