My cousin followed a different path, marched to a different drummer than the rest of us cousins. But as children, we made fun memories on the farm. A few years ago, before Will had serious health problems, he visited us in Celina at a reunion and we all reconnected. So glad we had that time before he left us. My condolence to his children and Wendell,his twin brother who was his caregiver. Sorry I am out of the country traveling and cannot see the family at Cridersville gathering.

We are sorry to hear of Wills passing. Will was a second cousin, but more importantly a close friend with my brother and I. We all 4 played and worked together on Chester’s farm and were in 4-H and went to camp together. Latter years, do to distance, we were out of touch, but when we did meet up he was the same old Will, Allways had a story to tell in his own way. To Wills family, may God bless you all In this time of sorrow.
