Gwen and Family,

We were so sorry to hear about Willie. He was a kind and caring man. He was always so kind and thoughtful to my Uncle Theron Blackwell (who he used to pick up and take him for breakfast). He was also a good friend and neighbor to my sister-in-law (Frances Giles) when he lived next door to them in Centerville. We offer our deepest sympathy to you, your husband and all of your family. We will keep all of you in our prayers.

Deborah (Riley) McGrotha and Kenneth McGrotha
