Condolence & Memory Journal


Though I won't be able to make it back for the funeral, I will be there in spirit. Willie was a wonderful sister-in-law. She had a terrific smile just like her younger brother :). I remember playing cards with Willie at the family reunions. She was a very good card player. I will miss Willie but hope she is having a good time with her mother, dad, Lorine, Reba and Charlie

There are too many wonderful memories in my heart...one i recall though is you telling me you buried one of the girls tonsils under the apple tree..I never would eat one of those apples after! You were strict in the most loving way and I was blessed to have a childhood with you. Those stories will keep your memory alive forever! I love you!
