Ardith and The Entire Morris Family, I was truly sadden to hear of Bills passing. You have my heartfelt sympathy. Bill was so upbeat every time we talked. He was a fellow flyer in the C-141 so we had a lot to talk about He even gave me a ride in his 1974 corvette that he was so proud of. He was a good neighbor and always ready to help when you called. Memorial Day was a particularly sad day for me as I think of some of my closest friends who have passed on. The memories of them, some of them sad, but many more of the happy times we have spent together, are very vivid in my mind. Bill will be right there with them. May God bless you and your family knowing that Bill is in good hands.
