Dear Lorena, Willard and Family,
It was with sad hearts that we received word that Willard Jr. had passed away. He was such a JOY to know and love. He was certainly a "Giving Soul" that even in death he continued to give, having fireworks for others to enjoy and having charities that needed funds to be provided for. He had such a thoughtful heart for others, always putting others ahead of himself. Even in the saddest of times, he was so thoughtful. When both Mama and Daddy died (5 years apart), his patience shown to the family, as we struggled to write the "right" obituary, wording both obituaries to show love, honor and respect for our dear parents, and trying to share a personal look inside to show the "real person(s)." After the funerals he gave us extra time to say "goodby", NEVER hurrying us along. This was precious and greatly appreciated! Willard Jr. was so patient and we loved him for his many kindnesses. He surely brought honor to his profession! You both reared him as you should have. His life showed his love for his family, his community and his God. He certainly has made you proud for all he accomplished. Please be reassured you're in our prayers. May God grant you a SPECIAL PEACE, knowing that you will see Willard Jr. again in God's Kingdom, where there will be no sickness nor death but everlasting joy. "Looking for the Blessed Hope and the glorious appearing of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ" - Titus 2:13. We love you and may God bless and comfort your hearts.
Love and Prayers,
Ray and Donaline Brown
