Go Little Wonders Bill is playing in the Final Game and it never ends. Played together with him four years and he was a great guy.

I've lost my best lifetime friend I ever had. We were so close at A. L. Brown high school and although he moved off we've kept in touch all these years. My heart hurts because of your passing but I know you were ready and didn't want to live in the physical condition you were in. I'll remember our hunting trips with my grandfather, you and I freezing in a tent at Uwharrie deer hunting and all the fishing we did. I'll never forget our playing sports in school and Lib and I picking you up for school in her Dad's old green Plymouth. A piece of my heart is gone but your memory will be there forever. I love you and I'll see you up there one day, old friend. I feel so glad I got to talk to you last week and you knew me and we said our final words. Your best friend, Jerry
