"God Bless Bill & Family, I will always carry fond memories of your family with me, even after all these years. I will cherish the memory of coming there for weekends and then the day Bill took me fishing, he always went by himself, but that day he took me, I was very young, maybe 12, we walked from house to Eagle Lake and got in this row boat and he taught me how to Bass fish. Well his patience with me fumbling around, because I was so nervous was great, best time ever for me, Him well I do not know, he never said. So many other memories, Rest in pPeace Bill, Bob Walter."
