17 years. Every detail of that day is etched in my memory.
Reflecting back to UKPD Dispatch where the dreams were nurtured. You had that drive and enthusiasm, we all knew you were determined and focused but what impressed me was your humble spirit. We both had setbacks but never wavered in the quest for a career in LE.
As I approach the end of my career, I know you were watching from Heaven, stay with me Billy on the home stretch!

Missing you today Billy. Still like taking a knife to the heart brother thinking you are gone. All the times missed hanging together. Have two little girls aged 4 and 7. Tell them all about you. Miss your quick smile, whit, sense of humor, strength. The world lost a fine man and me a friend. Keep you in my thoughts, always. Pray for your daughter as well.

15 years brother. Sometimes seems like an eternity, others an instant. When I was told the world stopped and it never turned the same again. Think of you every day. Whenever I see a Peace Officer, Squad Car, think of the outdoors, our time together as young-ens, the CAP, playing hoops, goofing around, the way you always looked out for me...

Miss you Bill. Honestly, you live on inside me and are an integral part of the man I aim to be. Honesty, integrity, spirit, commitment, humor. That smile never really has gone anywhere brother. You left too soon Billy.

Love ya.

Brother it's been 15 years today and yes it still feels like yesterday. I think about you almost every day, and make sure that every Dispatch class at DOCJT hears your story. Miss the days of sitting at Asbury drinking coffee and sharing stories.

I can't tell you how long it has been since I last visited this site. However I can honestly say that not many days go by that I dont think of you. I think of the short time he had with us and the huge impact you made while here. You left a wonderful legacy that will last a long time. To Carolyn, Prissy and Kaley I hope that the passing of time has allowed your hearts to heal. Love you and miss you Billy.

Highest respect,
Uncle Doug

I miss you Bill. Not a day goes by when I don't see your smile. What I wouldn't give to pick up the phone and hear your voice on the other end. How many times have I wished I could've used some advice for life's challenges. How I regret not spending more time with you when I had the chance. Bill taught me what loyalty really meant. Bill was my best friend growing up and the best friend I ever had or will ever had. Too early pal. Way too early.

I have a picture in my office of Auxier Ridge in the Red River Gorge. How many time had we crossed through that area??? Best times of my life. Everyday I can see your smile and it gives me strength. When confronted with a challenging decision I ask myself what would Bill have done??? His character was above reproach and his love filled all of us with joy.

Miss you brother. See you someday in heaven brother.
