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.
