    Sincere sympathy to Willie’s family – He and my Dad were such great friends/cousins! We all enjoyed whenever he came to the shop and visited us. Great guy!

    Uncle Willie was my Godfather and I’ll always remember the good memories of him when I was a child. I lost contact after my family moved away, but I never forgot him.
