The memory I would like to share about Mr. Holland is of his kindness. Billye and I had been best friends from 2nd to our 10th grade summer. The day they were all packed up and ready to move to Texas , we were at her grandparents home saying goodbye and crying my eyes out. The whole family was hugging me bye, when he did he told me I'm sorry I'm taking her away from you. He reminded me we are call away, and there is always 6 Flags, with his sweet smile. All four of the kids had the best daddy. I am praying for Mrs. Holland and all the family for healing the loss in their hearts. He will always be remembered of only good things, to all he touched.

Dad, I’m going to miss my best friend and I will truly miss our nightly talks. My father never met a stranger and had such a giving heart. Thank you for being such a positive role model for me.

Love you soooo much!!!

Bill was a great friend. He saw the bright side of any situation. He was an encourager. He loved to laugh & make others laugh. He was always smiling. He adored his family and was so proud of each one of them. He was lovingly devoted to Iris. One of my fondest memories was singing with Bill in a Gospel Quartet in Broken Arrow, OK. I will most definitely miss talking with him and receiving his text messages & emails. Jim & Jennie Harrell

I love and miss you so much Dad but you will always be in my heart forever! Your number 1 daughter. ❤❤

The love of music/singing and softball is something my dad and I shared. The love for his family was never hidden. He never met a stranger, and was so intelligent, that success followed him in everything he encountered. I couldn't be more proud to be his baby daughter. Miss you always.❤❤
