Our sincere condolences to Melody, Clara, Charles, and everyone in their family. Uncle Wiley was such a good, and kind man. He always reminded me of his father, my grandfather. He never had anything unpleasant to say about anyone. As a child growing up, I can remember him being so kind and he spoke with such a gentle voice. Uncle Wiley had a heart of gold, and I will miss him dearly. I wish my husband Ricky could have known him. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone during this difficult time. God bless!

My sincere condolences to Melody, Clara, Charles, and their families. We all feel the loss of my big brother Wiley. It hardly seems real that we will not be able to visit with him, and share stories of present and long ago.
Wiley and I were very close growing up and enjoyed many adventures. He once carried me out of rising waters when our Daddy's 1950 Ford became swamped in flood waters. We were having such a good time, joyriding in the woods near our home, when the road disappeared as we went around a curve.
My family and I will miss him all the days of our lives. The photo is of our Daddy, Wiley, and Mama from many years ago.
