I've got some sad news to report and a request for prayers. Our dear Brother Bill Ector is in the hospital with problems related to a previous stroke he had four years ago. It appears that he has a lesion on his front left lobe that caused him to have a very difficult seizure last night while at the Big House in Macon, GA. Thankfully, he was surrounded by loved ones and we did the best we could for him. He is awake and responding to questions at this point - which is very different from how he was last night. He will probably have surgery this week and we ask all to keep him in their thought and prayers.

Of all the prople I know, Bill Ector is one of the most positive, most loving human beings aound. Bill is one of the people who has stopped coming by this site as frequently as he used to because of the negativity. Life is too short and too precious to waste it eaten up with anger and resentment and lothing for your fellow man. It's really is all about the love...

I'll keep you posted, probably on the AG forum, with updates. He's in ICU right now in the same hospital that Duane and Berry were taken to. I don't think ICU allows flowers and cards... but if you want to send a note to Bill at the Hittin' the Note address it is:

8343 Roswell Rd, Suite 345, Sandy Springs, GA 30350.

I love Bill. What a great human being. This is truly taking the wind out of my sails.

Prayers for Bill.

Joe, please give Bill my love next time you see him.

Bill:
Wishing you good luck on your surgery and a speedy recovery.
You are truly a Gentlemen's gentleman and the few times I've met you in person usually revealed your incredible musical talents as well. Whether it be on the B-3, bass, or strumming an acoustic, you amazed me, and our brief chats always show that you're a warm and friendly soul.

I don't remember seeing Bill without a smile. Best wishes from me and Johnny for tomorrow and hopes for a truly speedy recovery.

Oh dear....Joe thank you for posting this and please update us when you can.

We are sending much love and prayers to our friend and brother Bill....stay strong. You have many, many people that are right now gathering and joining hands forming a spiritual circle...even though we can't see each other, I can feel it and I hope you can too.

HTN issue #50 had a cool message written on our envelope from Bill saying he missed seeing us in Atlanta this year. It floored me to think the number of issues they have to get out every quarter, it was so precious that he took the time to pen a message to us. But that's him, always making everyone feel special.

Bill we love you.......*tears*

Later w/love and prayers
Karen, Lynn and the entire Bomberry family

Hopes and prayers for my big brother Bill Ector (Willie Howard)...

A man I have not known very long, but in the few moments we have shared time, he is one of the kindest, lovingest people I know...

I wonder why my eyes are full of tears right now....but I refuse to cry...

Bill,

All my Love, and get your ass out of that hospital bed right NOW....

I just got off the phone with Joe, & I'm in shock. Please everyone pray for Bill, he's the salt of the earth and would do anything for you, even give his last breath. All of us praying for him I know would perform a miracle & I want this for Bill than anything.
I love you brother, more than you'll ever know......

Oh Oh... This is very sad news.... I met Bill for the first time at Beacon 06' he could not have been nicer to me... a pure gentle man... I was thinking how nice it will be to see him again... I hope and pray his surgery goes well and his recovery is 100% .. it's the only way it can be with all the love being sent to this wonderful man...

Thinking and praying for you Bill, be strong... we are here for you... as one family waiting to hear... Love and strength to your family , too

There's no finer gentleman that I've ever me than Bill Ector.

Going to an ABB, Derek, Mule or Oteil show is always a great experience. I've seen all of these bands so many times that it's gotten to the point where I look forward to hanging out at the HTN booth to meet and visit with all of the fine folks who come to see Bill (and Greg and Joe) as much as the show itself. I am disturbed and saddened by this news.

Bill, you are in Donna's and my thoughts and prayers. Please be well soon!

(((((((((((((((((((((((((((BILL))))))))))))))))))))))))))))))
This cyberhug will just have to do until I get to give one personally.

So true Ann, always a smile on his face & always able to put one our yours. Always a kind word too. You're one of the sweetest men I've ever met Bill, even more than your brother, bluedad. oooooh, did I just say that?

I love you brother & look forward to spending many more magic musical moments with you. wooo that's a tongue twister. But it's a fact; so many times I'm standing in awe at an incredible moment & look up to see your smiling face. Remember a year ago last week in Gadsden?

>>>>>>>>positive vibes>>>>>>>>>
Praying for a healing surgery & a speedy recovery,
Love you LOTS,
Ce

You're a wonderful guy, Bill, and I've been very lucky to work and talk music with you over the last few years. I really want to see you at the Beacon, so you'd better get yourself up and be there!

Dearest Bill, I dug out a great picture of you and your big smile, arms outstretched under the HTW tent at Wanee 2006. It is on my dining table now so that I ALWAYS remember to keep you in my prayers.....and in my thoughts throughout the day.
Get well, dear friend.
You are much loved, Willie Howard, more than you'll ever know.
Elizabeth
