Bill was my dear friend. A free spirited individual, he followed his own path. He was an intelligent, insightful, kind and compassionate man and had an inner peace I've rarely seen in others. He taught me so much, and I'm a better person for having known him. I will miss him always. Rest easy my friend, you've earned it. My heartfelt prayers go out to all his family and friends.

When I think of my years at Kilgore Junior High and Kilgore High School, Bill is always there. We had so many classes together, and served on Student Council together, working and playing many extra hours in those halls. I honestly thought some day Bill would be Pope! He was just such a great guy. And his faith was such an important part of that. My heart breaks to think of how his illness affected him later. But the Great Physician has now completely healed him, and he is laughing in Heaven! I can't wait to see him again in Eternity. My prayers are for his sweet family. I pray for that peace that passes all understanding. Please know that I feel I am a better person for having been a friend of Bill's.

So sorry to learn of Bill passing away. I remember him best as he was as
a little boy at Christ the King School. I know my sister, Joan, would be very
sorry also. My friend, Nancy Cato Bullock informed us of Bill's passing and
she is also letting Suzanne, Barbara, Becky and their dad, Ted, know.
Please know that Bill is in our prayers as well as all of the family.
Deepest sympathy. Jerry Dalrymple Kelly
