I was married to your son Willis Jr. He is walking with you now. He was so young when you passed away, so now I'm sure you are getting to know each other and you see what a wonderful man he was. We talked many many times about how he wished he had known you and how different his life would have been if yours hadn't been taken so early. I feel he left too early as well so please take care of him.
