Thank you Bill for being a part of my life even if it was just saying hello in the driveway. I enjoyed our chats about the Gadsden flag and what it stood for. I will really miss sharing a special reserve Root Beer with you on the hot summer days. I didn't know you as well as I wish I had but you were always a good man to me and seemed to be a happy go lucky kind of guy. I hope to be able to meet you again in the next chapter.
