Our Dearest Family,
There are no words to describe how we are feeling now. But we do know that Willie is resting in Jesus' arms and this gives us comfort. Willie was a quiet, gentlle man and a man of God.
We love you family. We will never forget his smile and how soft spoken he was.
Your friends for 50+ years.
