Candle lit by Richard Cross We shared a few beers. Willie was always willing to help other people. Move furniture, fix a car or supply a ride he'd be there. Usually a little later than he said but he'd show up. I've seen him give his last dollar to a stranger just before he'd say let's go have a beer, oh, and in case I didn't tell you your buying. He tried to act tough but he was a real softie that always had twinkle in his eye a hearty laugh. I will miss him.

Candle lit by Carol I shall miss you, your beautiful smile & your charming self. Thanks for the memories. Until we meet again.

Candle lit by Aunt Eula James, leaving God's earth is never easy as you leave your family, friends and fun behind, but God's plan is the ultimate.

Candle lit by Jimmy Willie was the hardest working human on the planet. I was looking forward to our next fishing/crabbing trip when he recovered. He did it his way and had fun along the way. May the lord have his arms wrapped around you friend.
