CandleI loved Willie's sense of humor. When I first met him, he teased me for being short and looking young - I couldn't work with his daughter, I looked like a kid. 😄 I'm still short, I wish looking young lasted!
Over the years I always enjoyed the stories Melissa shared about her visits with Willie. He was independent, strong, funny, and raised his daughter to be the same. He instilled a sense of commitment to family and hard work that Melissa is sharing with her children. Parents always hope to see our children do well and take the best of our lessons. I know Willie will be watching watching over his daughter and her family with pride, as they live out the best of what he taught them with a healthy dose of humor.
