I am so sorry to hear about Billy. It brings back lots of memories growing up "in the hollow". All the remaining Hawkins family remember the Morrison family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.

Hello, my name is Ashley. I did not know William personally, but I wanted to express my deepest sympathy for your loss. At times like this, I have found Jesus Christs' words at John 5:28,29 to be very comforting where he promised that "the hour is coming when all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice and come out...to a resurrection of life." We also have the comforting assurance at Revelation 21:3,4 that soon "God will wipe out every tear from our eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning, nor outcry, nor pain be anymore." I just wanted to share something encouraging that has helped my family in times of loss. You will be in my prayers.
Bill, May you rest in peace. You left quite a mark at the Natural Science Center through the many years you were there. My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
