This man was very special to me. He never made me feel like a daughter-in-law, but rather a daughter. I knew the day would come when we had to let you go, but never thought one minute how to say good bye. I still hear your voice saying,"I love you more", every time I got ready to say I love you daddy. My sadness is also filled with Joy because I know that you're resting in the arms of the Lord. Until we meet again, rest my daddy, rest.

Uncle Willie, 'Chief' as he was called by my son Torreey, assisted in his birth 41 years ago on May 26. This fact makes his death more profoundly sad for me. I love all you guys and will continue to pray our strength in God.
