I am so sorry to hear of Brother Willie's home going. He and your family have always been such wonderful friends to our family and even a bigger blessing to us. My thoughts and prayers are with Mrs. Elizabeth, Richard, Brenda, Jerry, Victoria and the grand girls. I can hear Mr. Willie telling Daddy that y'all still lived by the train tracks to come see him. There are so many sweet and precious memories of times gone by. We love y'all!

My family and I want to extend our sincere sympathy to the Summer family. My dad(Oscar Frye)thought so highly of Mr. Willie. They enjoyed many years of friendship at V.C. Summer Nuclear Station. It meant so much to us for Mr. Willie and his wife to attend daddy's memorial service last year. We are certainly with you in spirit today. Mr. Summer has left behind a wonderful legacy. His was a life well lived.

Aunt Lib, Jerry, and Victoria,
I am sorry we are unable to be there in person today to give hugs, but would like to send our love to you. Our prayers are with you. I am blessed to have great memories of Uncle Willie as he could always put a smile of my face with his fun-loving spirit. Glad to have walked the land at Little Mountain with Granny and your family in November, as this was a perfect last memory of Uncle Willie. He is now with Jesus and at peace.
Love, Kristin, Bernardo, Matthew and "Baby" Jacob

Miss Elizabeth, Richard, Jerry, and families....

We will treasure nothing but good memories of Mr.Willie. Johnny has shared quite a few fish-tales with me over the past forty years, and Mr.Willie's name was in MANY of them. (always in good, clean fun)
May OUR GRACIOUS and LOVING LORD grant you comfort and peace. You have our sincere sympathy.

Terrie and Johnny
