|Let the memory of WILLIAM be with us forever|
"We all miss you papapa!"
"Happy Birthday Dad,
It's hard to believe it's been over a year already. I was sharing pics and stories of you with Emma and Justin this week. We all love and miss you."
"I remember Uncle Billy's garden and spicy peppers, a shared love for gardens and food!"
"Dad, in honor of your birthday, Wayne and I had that steak, mashed potatoes, asparagus with hollandaise sauce and an ice cold beer you always wanted. I think I did you proud! Wish we could have celebrated one more together. You were a good father and as an adult I learned to appreciate all you did for us and the sacrifices you made. You touched many people. Until we meet again... Your Pitiful Pearl..."
"Happy birthday, papa! I hope you got that porter house steak and beer that you'd always talk about eating. Miss ya!"
"Happy birthday Dad--While I am sad that you are no longer here with us, the thought of you with Roger, Grandma, Grandpa, Anne, Uncle Bobby, and Uncle Tommy makes me smile.
There are so many memories from Yeoman to Muirfield growing up. That signature booming voice the Pierce men have that carried on to us. I am honored to be a part of this great family with all of our imperfections and flaws I have (had) some of greatest Uncles in the world. Wishing your birthday memory is a continued legacy R.I.P. and Happy Birthday Uncle Billy
Love one of your many nieces
Rhonda aka walkie talkie...."
"Happy Birthday Papa! We love you and we miss you! Rest well.
"Happy Birthday Daddy
I wanted you to know if I had the opportunity to pick any one in the world to be my father.... I would choose you. Although you gave me more whippings than all seven of my siblings received combined; I'd still choose you. I remember how you taught us how to stand strong and proud ; to look people in the eye not at the ground . How you helped us with our math homework after working hard all day . How to stretch a dollar and make it holler. Your coin collection.... Telling us that we had to be twice as smart as the man if we expected to succeed. Crying together when it was time for you or me to leave. Telling me you loved me at the end of our phone conversations. Your wisdom... I never met a man smarter than you dad. Your strength, courage and sacrifice for us... I'm forever thankful. Through it all, you provided many memories I can cherish and hold on to.....
Finally dad, I just wanted you to know you are my hero, you were the wind beneath my wings.
I TRIED MY BEST TO GET TO VISIT WITH YOU ONE MORE TIME. HOWEVER, GOD DID NOT HAVE IT IN HIS PLAN. HOWEVER, THE LAST TWO TIMES I VISITED WITH YOU THIS PAST AUGUST WERE VERY PRECIOUS TO ME. I JUST PASSED MY 83RD BIRTHDAY THIS AUGUST THE 10TH. IT'S MY PRAYER THAT GOD WILL ALLOW US TO MEET AGAIN. I'LL MISS WRITING THE LETTERS I USED TO SEND TO YOU. LOVE YOU. YOUR BROTHER, ERNEST FRANKLIN JACK PIERCE"
