In our life we are often blessed with many wonderful family and friends that have influenced and helped shape us into the people that we may become. I have been blessed with many such people. They guide us with love, understanding, patience and example. They will leave us with memories of love, fun ,laughs and lessons learned. Uncle Bill was one of those Blessings. Uncle Bill was the cowboy who let this yard warrior win many dirt road horse races. He gifted me with my first horse, (my first love). Uncle Bill also dusted the dirt off my britches when I feel off or needed some discipline. Uncle Bill is a Blessing that will never be forgotten. Much Honor and Respect for this man, may he rest in peace.
