Meet William.... I've seen William around a few times but never really talked with him. Today he was walking by and I said, hi! He said hi, Mr. Albert! I did not know the man knew my name. I asked him his name, and he told me it was William or Bill.
William said he was going to get lunch at the restaurant around the corner, I said, at the brewery? He said yes, it's a new place, he said, I don't get to have lunch out very often but I'm going to go today! He told me he's lived downtown for 31 years and has worked in a nursing home kitchen, stocking the shelves and cleaning. He is disabled but gets along. I asked if he would mind if I took him to lunch next week, he just grinned and said that would be nice, Mr. Albert. I told him to stop by and get me and we will go!
I am truly looking forward to lunch with William! He is a polite and cool guy. I can't imagine the things he's seen and I'm sure I'll learn a lot!
Thank you, William, for being you and for being a Character of Canton!
