Uncle Bill, you and Aunt Liz were, no, ARE a cherished part of my childhood. Courtesy uncle and aunt, but no less loved and remembered. I reckon you have met up with daddy now and are having a few good chuckles about the past. Always rembered, always with love. Karen Emerson (Hudson)

I just realized this site was available to write something.
My fondest memories of you Uncle Bill was when you would come to Roanoke Rapids, NC to visit Jesse and Fran (I call them mom and dad) and one time all us kids put together aВ 
surprise 25th wedding anniversary for mom and dad. My Jesse and I had just had a baby girl 5 months before and we were staying in their basement. (That sounds awful but it really wasn't. We had a double bed, a TV, and most of the time, peace and quiet). You came with aunt Liz and back in those days, the booze and guitars would come out. We are all around the dining room table, one big happy family. I loved it so very much as my family was not like that. Dad and Uncle Bill would bring out all the old classics from Hank Williams Sr., Johnny Cash and June Carter, George Jones, Waylon Jennings, and even older songs and we would all sing along. You would be surprised at all the songs us kids could sing, especially my Jesse and his siblings, they have heard these songs all their lives growing up from Uncle Bill and dad. I will fondly remember those days because of you, always.

Uncle Bill, my favorite Uncle. Thank you for always dealing from the bottom of the deck and letting me think I was a "natural" at poker. Thank you for always calling me dahlin' and for all of the wonderful memories at the beach in the summer. You were one of a kind, a very kind man, and you will be dearly missed...

Uncle Bill, I miss you sir. Too many memories to express; poker games with my dad and your brothers and your constant banter of jokes and stories; telling me you were going to hit a home run for me when I was 9 - you did; fishing with you when you were stationed at Ft. Eustis; my brother Jay and I staying with you at Ft. Benning during our cross country trip, enjoying more poker and pizza (and a little beer); watching you teach a class full of 'wanna be' officers; bringing by the new record of Waylon Jennings to our house on your way to Nam. В You were always a hero to me, my favorite Uncle. В Rest in peace.

May his family be blessed with the comfort they need now and may they gain strength from their precious memories. The loss of a loved one is a heavy burden to bear, but special memories can help us to cope. Please hold fast to the words of Jesus Christ at John 5:28, 29...what a marvelous time this will be! We can have our dear loved ones back in our arms at that grand reunion. Please accept my condolences.

Well Bill, this will be our final goodbye. If Sis was still alive we would be having a “coffee lace” and sharing memories of you. Remember how she used to chase you out of the kitchen with a broom when she had just mopped the floor? Remember when you and Dillard shot down Mr Richardson’s new corn shoots with your slingshots. You always maintained that you were just thinning out the corn. You were the champion slingshot and kite maker of the neighborhood and had epic acorn battles with Paul. You were a terrible tease and made me so angry once that I threw an ash tray at you. It’s a good thing I missed, it was a heavy ash tray. When you were in Korea Sis didn’t worry about you getting shot, she worried that your lips would be chapped and you would not have any chapstick. I loved all the times you came to Reno to visit. Remember when I drove you down from Tahoe and you insisted that my tires were worn and that I was speeding. You never let me forget it. I will miss hearing you laugh and holding my breath waiting to hear what was going to come out of your mouth when you told a joke, especially when there was a priest in the audience.
You will always live in my heart
