I had known Willie for 23 years. We started out playing cards, then I went out to his house and started doing woodworking together. I spent lots of time in his shop, we made a mountain of sawdust together. He was a very good teacher Then we started fishing and even went to Canada once. Willie was quite a guy to be around, I will miss seeing him. Maybe when we meet again he will have a workshop in heaven.
We are so sorry to hear about Willie. We enjoyed getting to know him at Winter Ranch. We will keep you and your family in our prayers.

I am so sorry to hear about Willie. Even though he was a quite man, I always found him to be sweet, gentle, and very nice. And every so often, his humor came through. He also had a beautiful smile. Please know you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
