    Elaine & Family

    We are very sorry to hear about Willie.
    Please accept our sincere condolences.
    We have many memories with the both of you that we will cherish for a life time.
    He made my Grandchildren, nieces & nephews believe in Santa , as he drove many a mile to be Santa for us during our Family Christmas.
    Riding with him and you on occasion with the Southern Cruiser we always enjoyed those times.
    Spending New Years Eve together and the rest of the gang, you were always the best cook.
    He was a Great Man who will be missed dearly by all who knew him .
    God Bless You All
