Outside of the ring, to Aunt Diane, old friends and family he was William or Moody. When he really had them laughing, it was Moody-Please!! It was best when we were all together and he had us laughing, especially when we were sharing the things that he loved. Like Country Music. It was always there. Getting to meet one of his idols George Jones on several occasions and take Aunt Diane to the country music awards was a highlight of his life. He loved Alabama football and because his boys loved Auburn, Iron Bowls were always special days with special traditions. He loved his Faith, it had deep roots from when he was a child but even more in the past few years because he knew it would bring him back to his Diana, his grandson Troy and his brother Bubba. He loved his parents, and he went above and beyond the call of a son to take care of them. He loved his sister, and they were a good team: from comedy and jokes to taking care of business, no matter what age, they played well together. He loved this country, and because of his and his brother's service in the Air Force, He always made sure to honor the military and their veterans every Memorial Day and Veteran's Day. He loved never letting memories die, especially of those who had passed on. He loved Mobile. He traveled all over the world, and to him Mobile is God's Country, and there is no place he would have rather been. He loved Mobile's Mardi Gras and sharing that with his Diana and his children and grandchildren was one of the things he looked forward to each year. Being Grand Marshall from time to time in the parades was an honor to him. He loved the Mobile Mysticks. One of his favorite pictures, is of himself, his Diana and Daniel at a hockey game, but what I think he loved most was watching his son Michael in the rink, officiating on the ice. He also loved being in Daniel's corner watching him wrestle. He loved other Mobile traditions, but I think what he loved most about Mobile is that it is where his family and his 3 rambunctious dogs are. It's where his Diana's memory is the strongest. I know in marriage love grows each and every day. Uncle Bill taught us that love does not stop growing when death does us part. He continued to love her more and more each day, even when she was no longer physically with us.
He talked about his family in a Thanksgiving blog in 2010 and these include the other names by which he is loved, but also how he loved us: Husband, Dad, Grandpaw, Brother, Uncle and Son. He said I am thankful for:
My Family. This is the second Thanksgiving that my Dianna is celebrating at The Lord's table in Heaven. However, I will never stop giving thanks for the years, love, sacrifice, children and grandchildren she gave me. If a flower dropped from the sky every time I think of her each day, I would walk in a beautiful garden for the rest of my life.
My oldest son Michael is too much like me, we are both too much like my dad, and that's scary if you really know us three. Michael and his wife Beth are expecting a new Moody baby in June, which we are truly blessed and so excited about. Notwithstanding, their little 6-year old Grace, is paw-paw's princess.
My youngest son Daniel, his lady Jami, and little almost three year old Danielle don't live as close, but only 80-miles away. They are such a special part of my life too, I just wish I could see them more often. If you are a regular here at my BLOG, you see and read about Danielle and Grace all the time.
