    You were the best dad anyone could have ever asked for. So many of the things I am today are because of you, and I’ll always be so grateful for it. From Star Trek to horror movies to spicy food, there are so many things every day that are going to remind me of you. I’m really going to miss talking to you every night about absolutely nothing. You made the very best roasts, knew absolutely everything about Keanu Reeves, and were always there to give me advice on things from car problems to parenting woes. I miss you so much already, daddy. I’ve already stopped myself from calling you a few times to tell you I’m having a crappy day. I wish I could hear you call me Tateybo and embarrass me just one more time. No matter how old I get, I will always be that little girl that thinks that you are the smartest, tallest guy in the whole world. I love you forever, daddy.

    I’ve been friends with bill for 30+ years. I met bill when he worked at jackpot back in the cruising days of levy. We became really good friends, I loved his camaro and he loved my gsxr motorcycle, so we would change rides quite often. I have been finding out all kinds of things about him and my bike ever since then, lol he would tell me little bits at a time. Come to find out he had it at 160 mph, 5 mph faster than i had it, he just told me about that recently, lol. Bill was a true friend, he would take off to florida for a bit then hed be back, sure missed him when he’d leave. Bill and his family moved quite a bit for his dad’s work, but they moved to searcy and that’s when me and my family started calling him searcy bill. I have so many memories with bill that i could go on and on. I loved bill like a brother and miss him so much already. Love and miss my brother.
