In the late '90's, I was pulling a water well in a pecan orchard he was managing. I saw him go over to a tree and pull a pecan off a tree and cut it open. He put the pecan up to his mouth and tilted his head back. I watched him do this several times. I asked him what he was doing and he said " I am drinking the nectar of the gods". Then he gave his usual laugh. He showed me that the pecan was in "the water stage" he called it. It was early in the summer. I tried it and it tasted like water. Nothing special about the taste. But there wasn't much water in a pecan at that time. He was just doing his job and checking on the progress of the pecans. the comment "nectar of the gods" still makes me laugh. Most of the stories I remember about William has him laughing.

I met William when he helped me find and trap my dog that was lost for almost six months. He has a special place in my heart. He genuinely cared about all animals and several lost animals made their way to his house. It was predicted that my dog would also find his way to William’s house. They were right.
