Willard was a special friend of my moms. She’s sad to have not gotten to be with him and talk about the Golden past of yesteryears.

So many rich memories but one of the sweetest is when Will listened to a very serious issue my family was having.
He could see it weighted very heavily on us to the point of giving up. He looked over at me with that trademark smile and sparkle in his eye and asked, "Why don't you let us help love you thru this?" And that's exactly what Will did. Blessings of peace & comfort to his wonderful family.
