Dearest Ms. Julia, Betsy , Nancy and grandchildren.
I was so sad to hear of Mr. Bill's passing. He was such a great man. Tall in statue, and even taller in integrity. We, The Blackston Family, could not have asked for a better family than yours to have been our next door neighbors for All Those Wonderful Years on "C" Avenue.
I can remember Larry and myself running to greet his car when he arrived home from work if we were playing in your yard, along with Betsy and Nancy. Mr. BILL was a gentle giant to us. Always kind. Always soft spoken to us. My fondest moments would have to be when my mother would call over to your house and tell him to meet her at the fence. That she had made a big pot of vegatable soup and hot cornbread that she wanted to share with you. He seemed to always enjoying that soup. And we enjoyed the quick conversations while passing the bowls over that fence. How I wish we could go back, for even a moment.
Mr. Bill will surely be missed by all that knew and loved him
Know I am thinking of each of you and praying for God's peace and comfort to surround you.
KNOW THAT WE LOVE YOU.
