Not sure what to say?

Velven my older brother always thought about me. While he was in the Navy he would write me and send me gifts.
After they retired to Fl. he always called me on Sat. Mornings

His Sister, Rosella

Linda and family,
Mr. Wooldridge will always be considered a HERO for serving our country during a time when fighting for our freedom was essential. You truly were part of the "Greatest Generation". Thank you Sir for your bravery, courage and sacrifice. You will always be remembered for teaching thousands of young people who went on to be producted human beings. What a wonderful legacy.

I would like to express my sympathy to the family for this great loss. May the God who comforts those that mourn sustain you during this difficult time. Isaiah 61:1,2
