WR was one of the kindest and nicest men I have ever met. He was my Uncle and I truly will miss him but I know he is now singing in God's choir with my Mama and her sisters. Hope to see you again in heaven. Love ❤ Lori

W.R. was a strong witness of God. I remember him quoting scripture and being very resolute in his faith. He was bold in testifying Christ to anyone he met.

"Also I say unto you, Whosoever shall confess me before men, him shall the Son of man also confess before the angels of God" Luke 12:8

W.R. was also a great friend to my parents throughout the years. I remember when he and his wife Carolyn drove to Charlotte with my mom to help me furnish and decorate my first home.

Sending love and prayers to all who will miss him dearly.
