    Bill was one of the kindest people I have ever met. I had the pleasure of meeting him in 2005 and buying his Aunt Janie Johnston's home from him. The last time I saw Bill here in Farmville, he was mowing his mom's yard. He was so happy to see what I had done with his aunt's home and how I had been keeping up his own mom's yard when he couldn't be here. I will miss Bill. He was a kind man with a caring heart.
