Their union produced two daughters. William loved his family and wanted the best for them.
As the sun was starting to set for Williams time here on earth, he was observed at peace with his life. When he was given three months by the medical doctors, God's grace gave him nine months free of pain and suffering. William was a common sense filled man and his wisdom about life and his daughters was always on point. William loved to eat and sweets in particular was his favorite. He easily assimilated with his large in-law family. William was raised in the church with his grandmother Woody and his mother by his side. Yes, he knew the Lord and the Lord knew his son.
William is already greatly missed and will never be forgotten for his easy ways. He took life as it was given and never complained to man of any suffering. God knew and loved William the best so he is now at home in heaven. Looking down upon us and still wishing all of us well.
A likely parting message to family and friends from William: God has brought you through before and He will bring you through again, make a decision everyday to choose Faith over Fear, I did. Alas, "we know that All things work together for the good for them who Love God, and whom are called according to His Purpose (Romans 8:28)"
