Nebraska soldier William Norder laid to rest

A soldier who was killed in a car accident while on leave from a tour in Iraq was laid to rest Wednesday.  His friends and family honored him in a unique way. 

Private First Class William Norder was buried at the Waverly Veterans' Memorial Cemetery.   He was thrown from his van last week in a rollover accident less than a week prior to his second tour overseas.

His sister, Dayle, says she won't remember that.  “He was fun, loving, caring, always there for me.  Smart, he was too smart.  I was jealous.”

19 of his closest friends wore shirts embroidered with replicas of Norder's tattoos and on their feet, his beloved Air Jordan's.  His friend, Shani Barros says, “Will cared about his family, friends tattoos and J's.  So, we figured we'd go out just like he did.  His tats around our neck and some J's, because that's what he would of wanted.”

A tattoo across his front read, “fortune favors the brave.”  Inked on his back was “follow me.”
