Bill and I met working midnights in the late 70's. He for VEPCO and me for ACPD. We'd have coffee at 3am several nights a week at the 7-11 at Wilson & Lincoln. We lost touch, but reconnected about 10 years ago. Because of Nancy and you, I moved my Mother to the same retirement facility as you and we remained close. You were always a good friend and will be missed. REST. You deserve it.

Dear Bruce.....It has been a long, long time since we've seen each other, but I wanted to let you know how sorry I am to learn Elliott had passed away. Ell', as I called him, we were great friends, and played a lot of football together. In fact, his picture in his uniform, hangs right here on my den wall. He was good! He could easily have played at the next level, had he chosen to go on to college. He was a top notch center, never missed a game, and never missed a snap. But more than that, he was my friend. I will miss him. Jimmy Johnson
