Katera,

I loved Ms. Willie. We had a lot of fun times. We sewed batman costumes for my kids, we did some shopping, we attended company parties, we worked on projects, we played bore, and had many more fun adventures. I miss her very much. Love to you and the family during this time. My prayers are for all of you to have healing from your memories. May God bless you all.
