Willard will always be fondly remembered for his kindness to my parents. He loved them (and was loved in return) as a son, and their lives were greatly enriched by knowing him and his entire family. And Betty, you were an indispensable part of that relationship. May our Father comfort you and the family during this time of grief with the certainty that Willard’s was a life well lived and that he has made it safely home into the arms of his Savior.

Betty and family I am so sorry for your loss. I know he will be truly missed by family and close friends. So much time has passed since I visited, but I remember so clearly how much fun Willard was. He could always keep you smiling. Now he will be smiling with our Lord and may he rest in PEACE.
