    So sad to see Willie’s picture in the Record. Great photo though. I sure enjoyed the times we had over the years. Diana, remember when Willie would say, “C’mon Cam, can’t you do a little better than that?”
    Too young to be gone so soon. He had a great spirit, and the twinkle in his eye was always present. I hadn’t thought of him for so long, other than the sadness of his passing, I sure had some wonderful thoughts of him when I saw his picture today. Condolences to all his family and friends, especially you Diana.
