I was sorry to about "Billy". What memories I have from being their neighbors. Especially remember the morning they came to rescue us from the hay loft of the barn because of the 1957 flood. Stayed with them a few days until we got the water out of the house.

Bill was a wonderful person and a very good friend. You will be missed very much. We remember the get togethers we had fishing, and the big picnics with friends at the pig farm eating calf fries. Bill always had a big smile. RIP.

I am so sorry to learn of Bill’s passing. A good man who never met a stranger, and always had a quick smile.
Safe to say, we all thought that he would be with us a much longer time. RIP, Bill ❤️
