It is such a shock to hear of this. Whitney was so full of life and loved her husband and children so very much, as well as her extended family as in in-laws, they were all so close and Whitney was very well known for taking the most beautiful pictures of her children. My deepest sympathy goes out to Michael and family? I just know GOD will see all of you through this dark time, don't despair the sunlight of the spirit will return. All of you are on our church prayer list and have many, many people in your corner and sending you prayers.

So sorry for your loss. My daughter Ashley Little worked for Whitney several years ago at ICD-3. I had the opportunity to see Whitney several times when I visited with Ashley at the office. She was always so gracious and friendly to me. I know Ashley would want me to send her sympathy as well. My prayers are being lifted up to all the family. God Bless You. Mitzi Murray

We lost one of the good ones when we lost Whitney. We all like to think we are good but not many of us are able to follow through on what we know is right. From what I know for Whitney this came naturally. I didn't know her for the last 20 years but for the first 20 years She made doing the right thing look and seem very easy.
As a girl growing up in Haleyville Whitney was very humble with a persona that projected class and distinction. Congratulations to Mom, Dad and Sister for the support you gave to help make such a fantastic person.
Today has made me more aware of the loved ones that surround me. I will make sure to tell them I love them because of Whitney. John Calvert, Jr.

It was a blessing to work with Whitney in an educational setting. She exemplified lifelong learning herself and was open to new approaches for the program she coordinated so successfully for so many years. Her professionalism stemmed in large part from her caring nature. My condolences go out to all who knew her, especially her beloved family.

Whitney was a great help to us when we began our ICD Center at BF Goodrich Tuscaloosa in 2005, and she was always available to brainstorm ideas and share her thoughts and experiences about what worked and didn't work at her Center. We will miss her very much! May God grant His peace and strength to her family, friends and co-workers in this time of great personal loss. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I have and will always cherish those memories of sweet Whitney and hold a special place in my heart for Whitney!! I pray for strength and peace in this difficult time for the entire family. I love you Whitney....rest in peace.
