    Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your loved one, Willie. May you find comfort in the words written at Acts 24:15, where God promises to bring back to life those we have lost in death by means of a resurrection. In the near future He will also eliminate our enemy, death.(Isaiah 25:8) This gives us the wonderful hope of being reunited with our loved ones, forever. Until then, I hope the memories of Willie and these promises from God comfort you in the days to come.

    Uncle Willie will be missed by all his family in Ohio. I’ll never forget how I thought of him as just a kid; he’d trap me between his extended legs while he sat in his chair... I had so much fun trying to get out. I will also remember being entertained by his tricks, he’ll always be strong and witty to me.

    Dear Kathy I was so saddened to learn that Willie had passed. My memories of Willie was a man who always has a smile on his face, a willingness to help others, and had so much knowledge at his fingertips. What a talented person he was. My thoughts are with you as you and Willie's family as your grieve for this wonderful man. All my love.
