Our Brother Bill by Judy Tankersley
|My Dear Brother Bill, William Asa Rose, born the sixth child of nine children and living through the great depression years had no easy life as a youth, but he alwys had a good generous heart and an easy smile.
In school he was pretty mischevious and sometimes
was sent to the principal's office. He had a very good singing voice so the principal would have him stand on the stage in our study hall and sing a song. It really embaressed me then, but now it makes me smile as I remember it. I think oour Principal must have understood his great energy and lack of discipline at his young age. Judy T.
