I am really glad to have known Mr. Woodley and love his family. He was vibrant and polite but didn't cut you much slack (in the best way possible). Mr. Woodley made you feel welcomed every time. He offered advice and true wisdom along with his southern hospitality.
I'll remember his laugh and big smile. A true gentleman who leaves behind a great legacy, he will be missed!

Mr. Woodley will be missed by all of us here at the CLC! Many thoughts and prayers to the family (our "adopted" family). There will be a hole in all of our hearts, that will be hard to fill. Much love

I wish I could be there in person to properly pay my respects to Mr. Woodley and convey my condolences to the Woodley family, but I'm still working in Germany and will not be able to make it to the service. Mr. Woodley and the entire Woodley family have been dear friends and a big part of my childhood growing up. I will never forget the fun Woodley gatherings I was honored to be a part of...and the endearing smile and infectious laugh of Mr. Woodley, that brightened any occasion. RIP Mr. Woodley...husband, father, brother...Soldier! All those who knew you are better for it.

Mr WOODLEY, was a wonderful man. Family meant everything to him and he instilled that trait into his children. They know few strangers and are a very welcoming group of people.
they welcomed me into their home and as I tripped through the doorway on my way in on my first visit
They jumped up to check on me and make sure i was ok and we have laughed about it ever since.
Mr Woodley you will be missed!
My Prayers go out to the family and friends may God hold you close in your time of sorrow.
Loving memories always

My fondness memory of my uncle Albert would be; how he always made me feel so very special and encourage me to the point of having that unique humbleness/confidence about myself as an individual who God happen to be bless to Black (A person of Color). Just growing up with all that LOVE and caring help me with some of the values that I hold true near and dear today.

Uncle Albert, I thank God for you and am so blessed that he arranged to place you in our family that we called YOU Uncle Albert. Sleep on uncle Albert and WE will see you again - His Promise!

All my God Given Love, Your Neice
Anita R. Ashford
