  10. would like to say I am going to miss you Uncle Willie. The thing I truly will miss the most is your smile. You were always smiling. Uncle Piggy hit the nail on the head when he was reminiscing about all the good times he had with you and the smile always came up. I know you are in a better place, but one thing I know for sure, the heavens are truly looking at you in all your grace and beauty with that gorgeous smile that we all are going to miss here on Earth. I have many memories of you that will always be in my heart. Will miss you, Love you much and RIH Uncle.

  11. I’ve been searching for Willie for almost 45 years!, Today, out of the blue, I put is his name with my IPhone and found him. That picture looks exactly like the Willie I hung out with in the repair shop on the USS Piedmont
    AD-17. I am so sad I didn’t get to see him after all these years. Rest In Peace Brother Willie.
    I’m sad I couldn’t see you some more down here.
