Lot's of Great memories with Bill & Libby!! Bill did the cooking for our golf outings. Always Great food!! You have a great deal of friends Bill and will be missed by many!! RIP and I'll see you on the other side someday!! Hopefully not soon!!!
Hey Billy...You will be missed...but I will remember all the good laughs and pranks we had with each other! Especially the “egg”! Is it hard boiled or is it not??? Billy ( as well as his brothers and Dad) worked at Budweiser for my Dad Sandy—each day after his routes Billy would come in the office and crack “my” hard boiled eggs on his head then eat them...so I made a batch of eggs just for him(leave mine alone!!!). One egg was not boiled...each day I waited as he cracked the egg on his head...finally the raw one...ha ha it ran all over his face!!!😂. Billy and Robbie have been coming over to Twin Lakes to visit me when I come back in the summer...I always offered Billy an egg with his Bud but he never “trusted” it!!! I have known the Brown Family for many years...all super great people. Billy I will miss our visits and laughter...the great stories we shared. When I come back in July I will come visit you...and always this Bud🍺 and “egg” 🥚is for you! As Bob Hope always said “ Thanks for the memories.”
