Not sure what to say?

Just learned about this and we are so sorry to get this news. Bob was a great, not to mention, fun and funny guy.

The Lemons family is sorry for your loss. Deirdre and Derek were classmates at Lord Botetourt with your children many years ago and we knew Mr. Wills through them. They had much respect and high regard for him. We will be thinking of your family during this difficult time,

Barbara and Paul Lemons

Dear Jane and family, I was so sorry to learn of your loss. Having gone through the sudden unexpected loss of my own spouse, I know how difficult this is on you, Jane. I was keeping a sick grandchild and then became ill myself over the week-end; therefore, I did not get to come to the visitation or funeral. I wanted you to know that I am thinking of you at this sad time. I will be sending a contribution in honor of Bob. Please know that I shall keep you in my thoughts and prayers as you...

I was so sorry to hear of your loss. I know it has been many years, but I remember vividly the love you had for him, always having something positive to say about your husband. I am so sorry. I will pray that God will give you the "peace that passes all understanding" during this time.

Steve, Jane and Family: I am so sorry to hear about Bob. I hadn't heard until returning to work today. He was such a wonderful special person. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers.


My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Wills family. Chief was an amazing man and I'm so grateful to have been able to share so many good laughs and conversations with him at Hollins.

The world has lost a wonderful man, but the heavens have rejoiced that he is home! Chief was a wonderful man- always a smile and great conversationalist. He was my neighbor, my Hollins co-worker, a Marine League member, but above all a great friend. Truly missed. God be with you during this great loss.

So very sorry for your loss.

I'm so sad to hear of the passing of Chief! He always seemed to know how to make us smile, kept our campus safe and I think he knew all of our names. Many prayers and blessings to one of the very good guys. Lella Baker '91
