David, Helena & family says
We miss you so much my brother! Growing up in foster care was tough. I know you were put in my path for a reason. The pain & the suffering that you experienced are not to be compared to the Glory that awaited you in Heaven. I loved you like a brother, a brother in Christ & at times like a son. Looking out for your safety when you were little was a gift from God. Yes, we fought, disagreed & drove each other crazy at limes, but not for one moment did we stopped our love for one another. Our family loved you with all of our hearts. I just wish we would have had more time together? Now that you went to Heaven first you can say to me, “I beat you there first, sis!” Lol! I will see you again one day. David, Jennifer, Jeremy & the grandkids will always remember you.??I can see you now in the arms of Jesus. The one who has always loved you? you will forever be missed, never forgotten, and always loved by us???
Disregard the previous question marks I previously made. They were supposed to be hearts!
Doing cartwheels in heaven! Nothing is stopping him now! I bet he’s got them all laughing too! He was such a good laugher! I’m sorry he’s not with us. Hugs

Always a smile, always a compliment, and always a hug–that was William. He will be missed by many. May the life changes he made be witness to others of God’s grace available to all. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. Sincerely, Carolyn and Jerry Akins
