Willie or Billy F was my second cousin. Our family used to take him and some of his siblings along when we went to Tompkinsville to Lyons Pool. My father tried to teach him to swim but he was very, very afraid of the water. I vividly remember when the call came to tell us of his death. I think it had to have been either in 1958 or 59. The Brady's pond posts brought the whole thing back.
