I have often thought about my Coach "Bill Jamerson". I have lost touch with most of the people I cherish as friends in Hawthorne area, now him being one I will see in Heaven one day. Coach J put a lot of trust in me as a Junior to lead his football team when I was in High School as quarterback and I will always cherish those memories. He was tough as a coach but fair. Our Senior year he had high expectations for us, and I let him down. I will always love the years I played under him he was a great man with the highest level of integrity. I cannot express to his Family in words how I feel about your loss there are to many tears to see to the keyboard now. God Bless and Love you all. Mallory Owen # 11

Loved being around “Uncle Laverne” with his constant infectious smile and deep, jovial laugh! He and my dad (Billie Frank Jamerson) we’re peas in a pod in many ways and it was fun to see them together. I’ve been to visit Laverne and precious, sweet Lillian a number of times over the years, not sure if I ever went inside (but prob did for tea or water). We would wander thru the camellia “grove” and talk plants and absorb u. Laverne’s wit and wisdom. From young days at Jamerson family reunions in Bell to local visits and maybe cane grindings(?) I have forever and will forever love the easy-going, gracious southern farmer gentleman, husband, father, uncle, grandfather, child of God that was uncle Laverne/Bill/William/WJ. My mom, Patricia Anchors Jamerson Stump, and I regret we can’t attend the memorial but will cherish our fond loving memories and pray for God’s grace, comfort, and peace for Lillian and the entire family. Love, Pat and Connie Sue Jamerson Young

He was my basketball coach in 1963-64. We made it to the semi-finals, when a 6'10" guy from
seabreeze caused us to lose. He always had a smile and laughed a lot:). He was fun to be around, and we all respected him as a coach, but more importantly as a person.

I remember him as Bill from many years ago when we both lived in Palatka. He taught school with my brother in law, Marshall Jones. I remember him with fondness and send sincere sympathy. Alice Farrell
