    I can hear Uncle Williams voice calling to his dogs or talking to his horse as I write this note. My memories are wonderful and strong and even though my heart is so sad those memories bring me great joy. May God comfort each of you as only He can and may your memories of a husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend bring a little smile and a flicker of joy to your hearts as you remember this wonder man. Love you all. Wish I could be there to hug and help comfort you in this time of sorrow. I’m with you in my heart and mind.
