Itsy, these mere words of mine cannot offer peace, or strength during this most difficult time, but please know that you will remain in my prayers, as I know first hand God can and will provide you peace and comfort in the days, weeks, and months ahead. I have enjoyed spending time with you, and Willie. He was a character. I will certainly miss joking with him about that shave and haircut. I was so thankful that I visited with y'all Friday night. May God continue to provide you with beautiful, loving memories of your sweet Willie!
