Leave Condolences

I was immensely saddened to learn of Bill's passing. I was privileged to work with Bill for many years at Preload, and had developed great respect for his exemplary personal character and professionalism. Bill's expertise and thorough knowledge of Preload's operations not only greatly contributed to the company's advancement but also benefitted each and every one of us on the staff and helped us become more useful and effective in our own work. Bill will be greatly missed. My heartfelt condolences to Jaqueline and the entire family. With warm personal regards, Nick Legatos

I am sorry for your loss. Billy was my first cousin. I am the son of Albert Douglas (Doug) Adams. Billy's mother, Aunt Sis, was dad's sister. My sister Nancy Boling and I visited Billy a few time to talk about the Adams family. He was a super guy, he will be remember as such. God bless.

Big Daddy once said to me, "I'm 87. I know a little bit about a WHOLE lot of things." He taught me so much. He was more detailed than anyone I've ever met. He made me smile and he always did SO much for so many. I know he and my Granny are up there having one hell of a reunion. I so miss them both. You are so loved Big Daddy. PS. You promised you'd go to the pool with me some day and I just knew you'd figure a way out of it. ;) Rest in Peace beloved man. Tell Granny I say hello.

I am so sorry to hear of Uncle Billy's passing but so grateful that it was so peaceful. Please let us know if there is anything we can help with. We will be there Friday. Mom also wants to share her condolences, but she will not be attending the funeral.
