He graduated from Nebo High School in 1940 and moved to Winston-Salem soon afterward, where he met Avis Bodenheimer at a boarding house. Both of them continued a three-and-a-half-year courtship through correspondence during World War II as Bill served as an Army Medic in Europe. Bill and Avis married a week after his return on January 3, 1946, and celebrated their sixty-third wedding anniversary this year.
While I'm reminded of it, this book is sincerely fantastic.
Happy Memorial Day.
