It took me a while to get to know Willie, but when I did, I really liked her. I only regret that I never got to play bridge with her as my partner. One thing I will always remember about Willie was that you never picked up your cards from the bridge table when the hand was over until she agreed with you on how many tricks you made! I will miss her.

We were bridge partners many times and I have missed her so! Also at church and Sunday school, circle, and other things friends do together. I will never forget her!

Willie loved to play bridge and she honored me by playing with me. I enjoyed her enthusiasm for the game and her delight at being asked to be her partner. She always gave her best.
I already miss her very much! Peace, Willie. Marie Pease Lewis
