Dear Jennifer, Debra and Elizabeth, I was your moms dearest friend in Asheboro. I heard about your dad from a friend whose husband also went to PC. I was in their wedding many moons ago. Your dad was a kind, fun and may I say handsome gentleman. May you find peace and everlasting memories of both of your parents. Most sincerely, Carolyn Isley McEachern(Rob), Wilmington NC

Billy and I were fraternity brothers at PC in the sixties. I have many happy memories of our times together, but in particular I remember summer school one year where most afternoons during the week we traveled the 20 miles or so to Lake Greenwood and his aunt Agnes Brownlee's lake house to water ski. I last saw Billy at one of our group trips to Charleston several years back. He is already missed by all of us who knew and loved him in college and the many years after! My deepest sympathies to the family.

I will never forget Bill's big smile and warm personality. A great man who will be missed by so many.

We will forever remember Bill and pray for you and your family.

So enjoyed spending time with you and Bill going to oyster roasts and block parties, or just passing each other on the street.

He took me in as a friend and I will never forget that.

I was saddened to hear the news of Bill's passing. I greatly enjoyed our years working together at MGIC. We worked hard and played hard and Bill was just one of those guys it was always fun to be around regardless of the event. We roomed together at many MGIC meetings over the years. I moved on to PMI and Bill moved on to Triad Guaranty where our paths still crossed on numerous occasions. We both had a great love

We never met but I have known Bill for probably close to 40 years in the mortgage business. One of my favorite people ever! Always looked forward to an MI visit from Bill. We will all miss him. Prayers for you and the family

I worked with Bill at Triad Guaranty. What a true classy southern gentleman he was. He was a wonderful colleague and friend. We shared lots of good times as well as a few rough times but it was always a pleasure to be in his company.

My family will be praying for Bill's family.
