Sorry to hear of Joe Williams passing. I attended Grade school and High School with Joe. Joe and I spent many a fun afternoon at his mini-ranch next to Oak Grove Cemetery shooting our BB Guns and chasing the chickens and whatever farm animals would be in the barn lot. Joe and I did not see much of each other after graduation but the memories of those times together came back often. May he rest in peace and be reunited with his parents. Dick Kramer
