My memories of Uncle Willie always put a smile on my face. I visited with him just a few weeks ago and we talked about his upcoming 80th birthday. He told me as a young boy, working on the farm, he never thought he would make it this long. He enjoyed talking about "the old days" as I shared some old photos with him. I'm glad I got to have that moment with him and gave him a kiss on his forehead that I didn't know would be my last. Loved and missed by his niece Cindy and family.
