|Let the memory of Willie be with us forever|
"I am so sorry about Mr. Willie. I never saw him without a smile on his face. 2 things stick out in my memories one was his loving way with his family and how smart he was when we remodeled a home. He would absolutely know just what he was doing on everything. Second we had talks about demons people fight always made me feel normal!! Love you and will miss our walks and talks! Love you so much!!"
"This man is one of the most amazing men I've ever met in my life. My grandpa. I wish I could have him forever, but he left this world yesterday at 10pm. I was in the room. I love him so much. Yesterday I told him he was the best granddaddy in the entire world, and I gave him a hug and told him I loved him. He looked me in the eyes and told me, I love you too, honey. I will never forget that moment. Im determined to let his life live out in me. With his love and compassion, which he deemed as the most important thing, and he showed it. If you went to visit him or he visited you, you weren't leaving without something in your hand. He loved to give. His strength, he fought until the very last second. Even yesterday, when he was so sick in bed.. he was trying to do his arm and leg exercises. His joy and love for life, nothing could bring this man down, not even the diagnosis of a terminal cancer. He brought so much joy to me, my family, and the nurses during these last months. He always had high spirits and always wanted to make everyone laugh. He was one of my biggest supporters throughout my life. He was always there cheering me on and convincing me that I was the best when I was a child performing my plays for him and even now. He loved that I worked with children and did physical therapy. I would have lunch with him about twice a week during my lunch break at work and he would pray for my talents and abilities to help these children. He would always check on me and takes care of me when I am sick, and I hope I did justice by helping take care of him these last couple of weeks. I know this is going to be so hard for my family because we just love him so very much. His memory and the things he taught us will forever live out in us. I always wanted my children to meet my amazing grandpa, and it hurts my heart that they won't on this earth, but they will know everything about him. They will know who he was, what he stood for, and how much I love him.
Have a suggestion for us?
