My deepest sympathy for your loss. I did not know William, but Aunt Laurine was my grandfather's (T.L. Reynolds) twin sister. I have fond memories of visiting Aunt Laurine and Uncle Fulton at their house, and probably met William when I was a child, but just do not remember it. Again, I am so sorry for your loss.
