    So sorry to hear about Willie. He was so nice and also funny. He and Kate were a part of my life growing up. Billy and JB and I went to church and played ball together. Willie live a long good life. He will continue to live through our memories and stories and tears and laughter. I know Willie is in a good place now. Sending peace and love to Billy and the family.
