I always enjoyed talking with Mrs. Wiley when I'd call her about Wiley's sponsorship for the Alabama Jubilee Hot Air Balloon Classic. We're very grateful for the faithful way she supported us. My deepest sympathy for your loss.

I am so sorry for your loss. Though I am from Decatur and very familiar with Wiley's store, I did not get to know Meccy until she moved near me at Wheeler Dam. She was always upbeat and very pleasant to be around. I loved it when she took part in the television ads for the store. She made them memorable! Her participation with the "Road 414" group activities always added extra zest. I don't know if she was appointed or if she volunteered to be the one to ring the bell to let everyone know the collection basket was coming around for donations to help with expenses for the next picnic, but she seemed to take delight in that job. She will be missed on County Road 414, Wheeler Lake. Pat Lee
