    I will always remember the kind heart and spirit Uncle Willie showed to me as a kid and as I grew up. He was always fun to hunt and golf with. Willie loved his family more than anything. We will miss you, but always will be remembered by all.

    Willie D. was my uncle ..he and my mom were very close as was all his sisters and brothers…they were raised in the head of a hollow were they learned hard work and leadership.. they all made fine and loving people.. the home they came from was a bible reading home and a day did not go by that God wasn’t mentioned…they had no TV and they bonded well as a family..I am proud to have had him as my uncle and I will miss him dearly. Words cannot describe how beautiful my memories of home and family are.. Irene I give you a hug sweetheart..and the rest of the family.
