"William was such a good friend and we enjoyed many memorable times together on Kerr lake and at his home.   We both loved to fish for stripers and relax on the lake.   It was on the lake where William and I talked about the lord and I know that he is there with him now.   We will be praying the lord will comfort Sandra, Brad and the entire family and ensure them that William is in his home.   I will miss my friend for now and look forward to seeing him again in heaven.    Miss you "Cookie Man"     God Bless the Cooke Family"
