I am so sorry to hear wild bill passed away. He was loved by the American legion. We were a couple at that time. They called us wild bill and hiccup. We had some bad times.but all people do. I really did miss him and loved him. But he wouldn’t stop. I was so shocked to find out he died. My heart is breaking I was wanting to see him. But today I seen his picture. Mama and daddy called him festus. He will always have a spot in my heart as well as yours have a good day
