    William was one of the most generous and caring persons I had the pleasure of knowing, and for about 10 years, being related to. I only have great memories of him, and there were many. He went out of his way to help anyone out, especially me and my mother. He loved to laugh and did that a lot. Never met a stranger. The world could certainly use many more like him. To Buddy and Bart, I am so very sorry for your loss. Please know that your Uncle Jerry and I are here for you so don’t hesitate to call. Love you guys!

    Buddy- We always enjoyed seeing and speaking with your daddy when we would travel to Tennessee from Virginia. He always had a smile on his face and a good laugh to share. Those were some great times and we have many fond memories with all of you and Wyatt & Abigail. Our thoughts and continued prayers are with you all. Sam, Susan, Jonathan Bryant. Kristina Bryant Watts. Godspeed William Bennett!
