Uncle Bill,
You have been more than an uncle to me. Your love and kindness sets you apart from being just an uncle. Sharing times in the kitchen cooking, in the garage fixing cars, in the basement watching movies or just sitting laughing about old times. I will miss all of that. But I know that my God will allow us to be together again. Kiss TT and Goldie for me and tell dad that I miss him too. You can fish whenever you want now. Enjoy Heaven.
I love you,

Grandaddy, you were the strongest, most calm and warm spirited person I’ve ever had in my life. Without you I wouldn’t have had a father to teach me what you taught him so that I know what to be and who to be as a man in this world, without you my grandmother wouldn’t have a strong man and a real man to be along her side to care for her and teach care of her, you have our family joy and happiness every moment we were together. I’ll never forget when you would always hold me when I was little, I never cried because I always felt safe with you and as I got older we always had good laughs and you always told me to never worry and don’t fear. Me and the rest of the family will miss you forever Grandaddy, I love you so much 🙏🏾

My whole life I’ve never known anyone stronger, wiser, and as calm as you Grandaddy 🙏🏾 Without you I wouldn’t have had a father to teach me what you taught him, without you my grandmother wouldn’t have had a strong man to hold her up and take care of her when she was sick, and without you this family wouldn’t have learned to stay calm and be settle through anything. I hurts me that you had to go but God knew it was time and you did everything God planned for you to do while on this earth. I love you Grandaddy and I will miss you forever 🙏🏾
