We knew WT as Uncle Duck. We always looked forward to his visit to Macon GA. He was the only brother to Marie J Moody, Elline J Bond, Theresa J Wallace, and Joyce J Terry.
He could make my Mother, Marie Moody, smile the biggest smile. We loved to tease him about “no socks”. He was a very special presence in our lives. Sharon I’m so very sorry. Love his niece, Nancy Moody.
