    Wayman Family:

    I am stunned to hear the loss of your son & brother William , All the Great memories in the old neighborhood come to mind. Though Billy was just a few years older than myself he was always kind & thoughtful growing up. It has been a while since I last saw Bill , When I did see Bill last he was very interested on how my whole family was doing. He was a standup type of guy.
    He will certainly be missed by all .
    Good bye Billy

    I didn’t know Bill for very long, he was my neighbor for a short time. He always had a smile on his face. Whenever I would see him it was always out side in the garden. He always asked if he could help me with anything. Once an awhile I would say yes. I have a problem with my speech but that didn’t stop him from talking to me. He was a nice guy and I wil miss talking with him and I will miss Iris too. He was well liked around here and we will all miss him and Iris both. May he rest in peace.
