    WILLIAM HAVE ALWAYS BEEN A SPECIAL FRIEND TO DURWARD AND ME. WILLIAM AND DURWARD HAD SO MANY FUNNY STORIES TO TELL WHEN THEY WOULD GET TOGETHER. WE ENJOYED HIS LAST VISIT IN AUGUST. WE COULD TELL THEN HE WAS NO FEELING VERY GOOD. HEAVEN HAS ANOTHER PRECIOUS SOUL.

    William was one of my favorite cousins, always enjoyed seeing and talking with him, had a smile and a laugh to go along with it. So glad I went to see him in the hospital. RIP!!

    William was my classmate, a member of the Oxford High School Class of 1962. He always had a smile when I saw him. I’m so sorry to hear about his passing. I’m praying for all of his family during this difficult time.

    Linda, so sorry to hear this. Always wanted to go shooting with William. Although, I’m sure it would have been intimidating for me. As we are the two oldest Parrott grandchildren, let me know what I can do or where you would like me to be and I’ll do it. Love you.

    Jane and I passed Mt. Zion and were concerned about who had passed away and found out it was William and we recalled seeing him out at Hilltop and his kind smile and “willingness to be so helpful”! Such a nice person to deal with in business! Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time!
