Deb, Larry, Billy & Patty....we will all miss him so much. This valley won't seem the same without "Big Bill" coming through in his truck or tractor. Thinking of you all!

We too will miss Bill. His booming "HEY", him asleep on Billy's porch,reminiscing about our fathers, having a shot of VO, and all of his stories. Odin Valley will not be the same. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Billy, Larry, Deb and Patty.

Yes, we will miss you Bill. All you can say about a friends life was...He loved, he was loved, and boy did we have some times. I'll miss you wild Bill, just like I miss the other wild bill Batterson, and John and all the gang that has gone. Be at peace.
