Will always Love You.
January 31, 2014
Willie was a great husband,friend,traveling companion,dad,granddad,great granddad. We are thankful to God for allowing you to be part of our lives.We are going to miss you, but it was time for you to go home.The blow was hard,the shock severe; we never dreamed your death was so near.But only those who love can really know the pain of parting.What it meant losing you , no one will ever know. To hear your voice, to see your smile; To sit and talk with you a while; To be together in the same old way would be our dearest wish today.But loving memories never die as years roll on and days go by; In our hearts a memory is kept of the one we love and will never forget.In memory of my husband, Willie Louis from your wife Juliet Louis,your son Sollie Mckinnon ,grand and great grand children. We Love You.

July 30, 2013

The year was 1961. I was in the Greenwood, Mississippi Unemployment Office. The white female clerk made a remark that I cannot remember and I responded with a lighthearted joke. She began laughing rather loudly. The entire office suddenly became eerily quiet. A feeling of foreboding swept over me as I began to realize that I had inadvertently done something wrong...but what? I will explain below.

I was a young "Negro" man at the time of the tragic lynching of Emmett Till. I can remember the feelings of dismay and hopelessness that I and many others felt in the face of the blatant racism that we endured in that era. I became one of Jehovah's Witnesses in 1956. One of the things that impressed me was the Bible based hope that all races of mankind would, in the near future, peacefully and unitedly live on a paradise earth. (Isaiah 2:2-4)
I and my wife zealously began to share that hope with others. In 1961,even though she was pregnant with twins we accepted an opportunity to share the Bible promise of a paradise earth with the "Colored" people of Greenwood, Mississippi. Strict segregation laws were in effect. We were fully aware of the recent history of events in the Greenwood area and that as black Californians we would probably be viewed with suspicion as possible "trouble makers." However, our mission was to convey the message of the only real hope for all humankind...God's Kingdom. We found our listeners to be oh so humble and without guile. We had wonderful experiences as we conducted numerous Bible studies with eager and appreciative audiences.

However, it was extremely difficult to find employment in Greenwood and that is why I was in the Unemployment Office as mentioned above. After the hush descended on the office I was feverishly trying to figure out What had I done wrong? I began to think back about what had happened to Emmett Till...Then it struck me, The boy had made the mistake of becoming too familiar with a white woman! Now I was being viewed by everyone in that office as being too familiar with the white female clerk. My heart sank. Was an innocent joke going to get me lynched? Would I ever see my wife again? Would I ever see my yet unborn twins? What do I do now? I began praying silently to Jehovah for protection and guidance. I thanked the clerk for her assistance and hastily left the office. I made it safely home without incident. For reasons that I will never know nothing further resulted from that encounter.

As I now read the Willie Louis obituary I can fully appreciate his bravery and courage as a teenager in a deathly hostile environment fully aware that the accused would probably be found innocent, nonetheless, testifying in court as to what he had seen and heard. Willie Louis was a man among men! I honor and respect him for that.

The Bible also promises a resurrection from the dead.(John 5:28) I personally look forward to that day with the hope that I will be able to greet Willie Louis and Emmett Till and help them understand and appreciate that God's promise is being fulfilled and that brutal attrocities that they have experienced and seen will never occur again. "For he will deliver the poor one crying for help, Also the afflicted one and whoever has no helper. ?He will feel sorry for the lowly one and the poor one, And the souls of the poor ones he will save. ?From oppression and from violence he will redeem their soul, And their blood will be precious in his eyes." Psalms 72:12-14

Our deepest sympathy to the Louis family for your untimely loss. Our faith in humanity was re-established when we read Mr. Louis' obituary and realized that he acted so bravely at such a young age. We are also happy that his silence regarding this act allowed him to remain alive for so long. Jesus must have had Mr. Louis in mind when he spoke the words at Luke 23:43. Looking forward to asking him to personally share his experience with me.

Thank you so much, so very much, for what you did and for the loving wife who stood by you all these years. May God's peace and love comfort her until you meet again.

July 25, 2013
My heart and prayers are with the family of Mr Louis. "May the God of all comfort , comfort you in this time of sorrow."
July 25, 2013
If my brothers and sisters knew more about their history and understood what the fight was about they would understand their being they would understand their worth I remember the struggle I remember the image of not only emmet till but so many others. I will continue to show and tell my children so they will get some understanding of their history.the Louis family have so much to be proud and grateful for pray and stand strong . Mr Louis is a hero to everyone.
July 25, 2013
Mr. Louis' name should be written alongside the definition of the words “courageous, “hero,” “bravery,” and “idol” in Webster's dictionary. When we google his name on our computers, these words should be used to describe him, and maybe then our young people will really know the meaning of these words. He indeed stood up for righteousness. He not only stood up in the face of adversity, but he showed up. I can't even imagine how he was feeling, how his family was feeling about him testifying, and how that horrific crime may have played over in his mind every day of his life.

However, I find resolve in the fact that Mr. Louis “LIVED” and went on to a fulfilled life, and what is so very awesome is that Mr. Louis lived to see justice for Emmett Till. God was gracious enough to show him great favor, and I pray that God will continue to bless his wife and family.

My sincerest sympathy is extended to the entire Louis family. “Well done…thou good and faithful servant!” There is a good reward waiting for you.
July 25, 2013
Thank-U for being U,we need more people with that kind sprit that you have shown.
July 25, 2013
I believe what Willie did in testifying was very brave of him. The decision couldn't have been easy considering the conditions of things back then. He should have been rewarded for stepping up and doing the right thing. We should have a "Willie Louis Day" to remind people of what courage is.
July 25, 2013
Thank-U sir for being U.We need more people with your kind sprit.
July 25, 2013
I honor you for fulfilling your purpose here on this earth according to God's WILL for your life. #YouLivedAPurposefulLife

Apostles Peter and Paul, Capt. Alfred Dreyfus, Willie Louis; voices from the past that have had a profound effect on our past, present, and future; without their courage we would be a soul-less, loathing mass.

He will suffer no more, and now he's free! Surely his name has been written down in the Lamb's Book of Life for trusting in God all of his life after such a tragedy regarding Emmit Till.

How well I remember that lynching. I was a little girl living in New York and that was the talk of the day. But when you're little and don't quite understand all of the facts, it was frightening!

Mr. Louis fought a Good Fight, He kept the Faith and finished his Course. Now there awaits for him is a Crown of Righteousness.

Thank God for a man who was willing to give up his life to help make what happened to Emmit Till right. His testimony bore fruit and indeed his life was not in vain.
July 24, 2013
May you rest in peace. And thank you for standing up for what was right.
July 24, 2013
Thank you Mr. Louis, for doing the right thing...

God Bless you and your family.

Dear Willie;

you were a very brave man, with more character than most people will ever have.
You never forgot young emmett till and the horrible death he suffered.

your bravery clearly demonstrated and personified the statement, "do the right thing".
