I have known Mr. William for many years. Knew him when he was at Delta. After you were at Christian City I visited you as much as I could. I remember the first time I saw you there. It took a few times but you finally remembered who I was. You always took my hand and would look for a while. I always smiled when you would say Mr. Rube. That is when I knew you knew me. Over the years I always loved seeing you. I will miss seeing your smiling face. Rest In Peace Mr. William. Prayers for all family and friends. Prayers

Willie Kate, Sharon, Shelia, Rodney, Keith and Phyllis. I know the sting of losing a father and I pray that you receive comfort in knowing that he is with the Lord. I wish that I could be there with you all to celebrate his life but circumstances beyond my control are causing me not to be able to. Please know that my prayers are always with you and if ever any of you need to talk, believe I'm here for you. I notice when I read the name, I never knew that William and Daddy share the same middle name. That's probably one of the reasons they were so close and now they are together again, William and as he called Daddy, Boom Boom, together again. Much love to you family.

There aren't enough words to express the love I have for my father. He was such an remarkable man. Daddy brought so much laughter into people lives. I'll always remember the funny things he use to do & say that would have you cracking I'm going to miss you dearly Boom Boom but I know you're in a better place. No more worries and no more pain! I'll see you again one day on the other side. Until then I'll cherish the moments we shared here on earth. Gone but never forgotten! I love you! ❤❤
