Diane Von Hoffman reflects on her encounter with Paul Bearer this past weekend
Hoffman via Facebook:
I just saw everyone posting Bill Moody aka Percy aka Paul Bearer. Joe C and I were watching him Fri night Mar 1st, dancing in a wheel chair to Bobby Simmons singing and jokingly arguing with Bob Kelly about who was going to hold the money Terry Rocker Lawler and his wonderful group had raised to keep the Gulf Coast Wrestlers Reunion ALIVE. I know he was saved and I know he is in heaven. IM SO GLAD I got to see the happiness that night. RIP BILL. I’m sorry doesn’t help your family, but you are home.
Hoffman relied to GERWECK.NET about the encounter: “He was in a wheelchair but he got up during a song. He was super happy and his same old silly self. Guess it was just his time. Someone asked what was wrong because of the wheelchair he said IM FINE! He was so looking forward to CAC (Cauliflower Alley Club) and was so honored to be receiving the LOU THESZ award ABD Bob Kelly was to induct him. He was a God fearing man and loved the Lord. He told one of the guys he was fine but he will be missed as MC of Gulf Coast.
