Condolence & Memory Journal

My brother, Danny, and I grew up with Bill in Melrose Subdivision. We went to Melrose Elementary, Westdale Junior High and Baton Rouge High School together from the mid 50s until the mid 60s. Bill and Danny graduated in 1968 and I in 1966. He was always a great guy to be with and we had many great times together. Hope to see you again sometime Bill.

Your the one person I could always count on or go to regardless. You may have fussed me some but you always loved me regardless. I'm definitely gonna miss our wild rides and those Kung fu chops and kicks.

My brother, Danny, and I grew up with Bill in Melrose subdivision going to Melrose Elementary, Westdale Jr. High and Baton Rouge High School. While I had not seen Bill in many years I did call him during the Covid lockdown and I recognized his voice immediately. Good bye old friend, I hope to see you in the future.
