Willie you were an amazing man and we were privileged to have been a part of your life. Bryton isn't always the nicest to people but he loved you because all I heard about for days was "mommy Willie has deers at his house and let me pet them". Children are amazing judges of character and he knew you were one in a million. Please help guide Brenda through this difficult time be her light in this darkness. We love you rest easy and i will continue to pray for the family during this time if sadness xoxo
