Aunt Betty and children, please know we are thinking of you and may you find comfort and peace in the days to come as your reflect back to all the wonderful memories you have as a family. I can just see Uncle Willie sweet smile and hear his chuckle now. What a wonderful man, husband, father and Uncle he was. He was also a constant reminder to me of my dear mother as they both definitely had that Hamlett face, I was thankful for that! He an I just seemed to always get click and I know he he just loved it when I told him how good looking he was with that mustache lol! I truly loved him and he will be forever missed. Our deepest sympathy to all! Love you guys! Pat and Dan

Aunt Betty and boys, just want to express my sorrow over Uncle Willie’s passing. My fondest memory of him is riding out on the trailer behind a tractor to see the new baby pigs. Funny how things come to mind when thinking about someone. Love and prayers to all.
Pam Lewis, neice
