You guys are always in my thoughts and memories, kinda like having had two families. It always felt as if Uncle Bill and I had a "special" connection with one another, but then I think that he just made people feel that way. His quiet, kind demeanor, that smile and little chuckle that went with it will always be with me. Donna, Jon, Billy, my heart goes out to you and may you always share these warm memories.
Love you guys,
Rusty Collison and Family (Warwick, MD.)

Please accept our family's deepest sympathy. I met Bill when Sid Collison married my mom (Edith Lively Collison) in 1999. He was a very kind person and loved to talk and joke with Mom and Sid. He also helped move Sid from Delaware to Beckley...and boy did Sid have a lot of stuff! Great memories. Linda Murdock, Eddie Lively and Harriet Pauley.

Please accept my deepest sympathy. I have very fond memories of Uncle Bill. I remember his laugh and will miss our visits when he would stop by the ER in the VA just to say hello. Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal.

As Louise Millner's pastor, we are praying for the family to be comforted by the Lord and rejoicing for another Saint to be added to those around His throne.

A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, they live on. Please accept my condolences, he will not be forgotten.
