Bill and I were the best of friends growing up on Virginia Avenue in Montgomery. He joined the Air Force & I went into the Navy after graduating from Lanier HS. Had the pleasure of super surprising him by walking in on him when our ship docked in Guam in Fall of 1946. Sorry I can’t be at Celebration of Life Service but our prayers are with entire family. Would be delighted to talk with some of family. Tel. - 273-9576.
