I am sorry for your loss, please accept my heartfelt sympathy. While you are preparing to lay your loved one to rest, to sleep for a little while in death(John 11:11), I hope you will find comfort in knowing that soon Jesus' promise of the resurrection will be fulfilled; when he will awaken those who are sleeping in death, restoring them back to life, to live eternally on the Paradise earth.-John 5:28,29; Luke 23:43. Until that blessed promise is fulfilled; may Jehovah God soothe your grieving hearts now and grant you peace and comfort.during this time of sorrow.-Matthew5:4.

Hi my name is Kayla and I am a bible student and I would just like to say that I am very sorry for your loss. There is a scripture at Isaiah 25:8 that says that Jehovah will get rid if death forever and he will wipe away the tears from everyone. So there will be a time when we will live forever, so I hope this scripture can bring comfort to your family.

A message to Trey from Willie..."don't worry about me anymore Dad, whenever you have me on your mind, remember I'm still walking in your footsteps only half a step behind. My life on earth is through, but I'm closer to you now than ever & will always love you.

Willie was born to serve, that's why he loved any thing related to the Military. I'm so proud to call him my Great-Nephew, for he truly was and is my GREAT Nephew! He is one more Hero of mine in Heaven now -- added to an Army of Angels. May God comfort us all...

Willie has been very dear to my heart over the past 5 years. We have laughed together, cried together, listened to music, talked about history, the Bible, and classic literature; and shared jokes. I am going to miss his sweet smile, his gentlemanly ways, his compliments, his quick wit, his thoughtful gifts, and his timely hugs.

Although my heart is heavy, I look forward to the day when I will see Willie again. I am sure that right now he is up in heaven - either singing, playing an instrument, or sharing jokes with our Saviour!

I love you, Willie, and I am honored to have been your teacher. This is not "good bye." It is simply "See ya later, Buddy!"

I remember Willie running around his new home in Carrington at Wakefield Plantation when he was a little one. Always smiling and so very curious about everything.

Our deepest sympathy along with our thoughts and prayers go out to his loved ones.
