    I want to extend my deepest sympathy to you and your family upon the loss of Willis. I knew Willis due to working with him through our School District and his kindness/support of our son, Corby. Willis was a fine, caring, Christian man and he will be missed! You and your family will be in my daily prayers. May God comfort, encourage, and support each one of you through this difficult time. May God bless each one of you.
    In Christian Love,
