William was one of my best friends at Savannah High School. He, Bobby Boggs, Earl Sims, Quinton Shearouse, and I, thought we were the smartest students around. And William was the smarter than the rest of us. After high school I lost track of William and in recent years had hoped to find him and ask how his life had turned out. Much to my sorrow, I find that I am too late. I am the only one now remaining of our group.
