I’m sorry to hear that you’ve lost your loved one, yet we both know that it will be better on the other side. As I think of Doug, Howard, Andre, Lavada, and Bernice, I think of the times we played outside. We had a wonderful group of parents, you mom, Mrs. Margie and my mother we had no choice but be right under one of their eyes. As we grew older going into our own direction, seem to have lost contact, but the memories remain. Rest In Peace William, Rest In Peace, maybe one day we will see each other there on the other side. To the family, your memories will forever be in your hearts, so as long as they remain. You will not have lost him. Precious memories, how they linger.
