    W.L. was one of my best friends in the Snipesville area. He was gifted in being able to do mechanical repairs on tractors and other farm equiptment, not to mention being able to work on cars and trucks. He understood more about these type of things when he was a teenager than most adults probably ever learn in a lifetime. To me, he was a genius. W.L. matured quickly after the loss of his older brother Herman in an accident in the Ocmulgee river and took on all the responsibilities of an adult at a young age. Lots of hard work on those tobacco farms, but lots of good memories.
