      William ( Billy Kinds ) was very special to me. I met him when I was 25 and we ” click ” immediately, He was 12 years my senior and he was like a big brother to me. Like Bill, I too was a welder and he taught me things about welding that made me a much better ” metal fusing technician ” as he would often say. When my wife ( Shirley ) met him she liked h I’m from the very beginning and that says volumes to the person he was. I can remember the times we would tell across the welding shops ( POUR THE IRON !!!! ), It’s times like those I’m going to miss. Shirley, m y wife, will miss him a lot, she always sent Bill and Darlene Christmas Cards each year, a tradition she set aside for the very Special People in our lives. Rest in Peace Big Brother.
