I didn't forget your birthday this year. I never will. I think of you all the time but this time of year, with Vince's Birthday, your birthday and then your passing, it is bittersweet. Many tears, many memories, I wish you were here!

Happy Birthday Monster! I love to come to this site and read all the stories, memories and photos. One minute I am crying the next laughing so hard! I am working on getting some of the old tapes converted to CD so I can add more photo and video memories! It's kinda weird but it helps me to deal with the loss and the pain. You will always hold a special place in my heart and I miss you!

“grief is the reminder of the depth of our love. Without love, there is no grief. So when we feel our grief, uncomfortable and aching as it may be, it is actually a reminder of the beauty of that love, now lost.” Excerpt From: Douglas Carlton Abrams. “The Book of Joy.” iBooks. https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/the-book-of-joy/id1093343088?mt=11

– from Kahlil Gibran Farewell to you and the youth I have spent with you. It was but yesterday we met in a dream. You have sung to me in my aloneness, and I of your longings have built a tower in the sky. But now our sleep has fled and our dream is over, and it is no longer dawn. The noontide is upon us and our half waking has turned to fuller day and we must part. If in the twilight of memory we should meet once again, we will speak again together and you will sing to me a deeper song. And if our hands should meet in another dream we will build another tower in the sky.

I will be going along, a song will come on, a memory will come and I just get this stabbing pain in my heart for you, for me, for our sons! I miss you so very much!

Happy Birthday Willie! I am having dinner with the boys tonight as they sit and watch football. Vince is off to Hawaii again tomorrow. He just got back from doing a 6 month contract working for America Corps. He got to see alot of California. He started in Santa Cruz, worked outside of Palm Spring and in Lake Tahoe. This will be Vince's third year in a row in Hawaii for Halloween! The Buckster is living with Fred here in Boise and working at Construction. He has worked with this company for 2 years and doing well! He just bought an old jeep cherokee to get around. Thanks god he is off that motorcycle and not trying to ride his bike 10 miles across town anymore. We lost mom a few months ago, so I hope you two are up there living it up! I miss you always and i know i say it everytime but I see you in both of these boys! I LOVE THAT! You would be a proud poppa!

My parents and I were just talking about you and Willie the other day. It's a story that never tires and always brings smiles. The Hawaii trip when he came a couple days later and they never saw you guys for days! He was a good and happy soul and we will always think of him and miss him

Happy birthday Willy man! Not a year has passed that I have not thought about you and Allissa many times. You are still missed so much. Always in my thoughts.

Looking at old photos today. Working on getting them to load onto this site. So many memories. Our house in Marysville, with the big bouy swings you made in the back yard. Willie always had so much fun with the kids. Taking them hiking, crabing at the beach, putting all the kids to work helping with stacking of the wood. Hiding easter eggs in the forest with money in them. We took Aubrey, Ashley, Buckster, Vince, Neighbor kids, and friends camping and to the lake. Always sitting around the camp fire, giving rides on the jet ski's, going out on the boat. Fun times in Olalla Canyon with our friends John and Chaun,hiking, rock climbing and playing in the snow. Everyone has a great story or memory with the Willie man!

Thinking of you always but especially this time of the year! I will never forget! SO many thing remind me of you. Tears come to my eyes with just the thoughts. The corn and sunflowers that you planted, The sports that are on, Hoodie sweatshirts, Bon Fires and choppin wood! Your birthday, Vince's Birthday and Ian's birthday! You were always getting ready to go fishing this time of the year. When I am in Ballard and at Fisherman's terminal. Anytime I see a red miata, or the way William is always riding his bike..... and crashing! LOL Theresa was just here visiting and all those times we shared with our families. Baby Jaynie and Olive. All the nick names you gave everyone. I still have your name in my contact list on my phone. I see your face, your mannerisms and your personality when I look at our boys. That all makes me happy and sad! I will never forget! XOXOXO

Hey buddy, It's been 2 years and you have not faded one bit from my memory, the tears run down my face as I type this. What I would do to be cutting wood with our chainsaws in Stanley with you, or argue over the election. Life has gone on but there has been a painful void where you used to be and I always regret not doing more to help you Willie, I am sorry brother, you are so missed..

Tony & Dana beebe Willie was a great friend and a great brother in-law and will be greatly missed by the whole Beebe family. He was a good man and a great father and a loving husband to my sister and a great uncle to my girls. I feel blessed to have been his friend and brother for 18 years and he will be greatly missed by the whole family. We have so many great memories of Wille and wish the best for Allissa, Vince and Buck in their time off loss

Willie was the life of the party at Gramma & Grampa's...always joking and having fun and with that huge grin on his face. I think of him joining them & Gramma welcoming him with open, loving arms. We will miss his spirit. Thinking of you, cousins, with sadness for your loss and love in our hearts. Love you guys so much.
Posted by Christine Clymens on November 17, 2010
My dear sweet Edwards and Bebee family...Oh how we all will miss Willie. We had some good times, some great laughs, and an even better friendship! Keaton loved his Willie-Man. One night when he was about 3 we were saying his nightly prayer...we always bless our family at the end and as we were going down the list and about to say "Amen" Keaton stopped me and said..."AND WILLIE-MAN". (so sweet) xo

Allissa and Family, I am so very sorry for your loss. You'll be in Our thoughts and prayers... The Hooper Family
