  1. My dearest family we lost a great tia, sister and a friend. We all love her some much. We have so many memories of her, partying with her, dancing at her home. Those memories will always be in hearts and minds. We will cry and miss her but just think she is with her husband, daughter, brothers and mom and dad and especially with Jesus, God. She is in a happier place and peaceful. I love my tia Willa with all my heart ❤️.

  4. It was with a high degree of sadness and shock to learn My Sweet and Beautiful Sister-in-Law passed away. Wila is one of God’s most favorite Children, I believe, because of Her caring, nurturing and loving personality. Wila loved life, Her Family and most of all Jesse, Her Husband of over 50 years! I am grateful We were able to spend Christmas with this wonderful Lady in Texas! As Christians, We know Wila is now having a “reunion” with all of Her Family and Friends who left this physical world before Her, a comforting thought. Goodbye My Sister-inLaw, till We meet again, one sweet day in Heaven!

  5. Sister I miss you so much! Thank you for being there for me when I needed you the most. It was so hard having to remove you from my phone list. I was so use to calling you every morning to start my day. I miss our grocery shopping our casino times and taking you to your doctors appointments. You were my rock my counselor and my best friend. You will always be loved! Hope your now having fun in heaven. Be with God and the others who left us. Love you my sis!

  7. I don’t know where to start we had the Time of our lives at Disneyland. Especially when we were all hiding our beers from Joey like little kids so that we wouldn’t get caught. I will never forget those days and when I was growing up I loved being at your house. I love you Tia Willa and will miss you so much. You’re now with your love and your daughter.

  8. Momma words can’t describe how much I miss you! I don’t know how I’m going to get through this! I’m selfish momma ,I wish you were still here! But you were suffering ,and to see that was heartbreaking. I knew in my heart you were ready! You earned your wings finally and you joined sister and dad! I’ll continue to push through my trails! I know you’ll always be with me! I love you momma. I will forever be thankful for everything you done for me! Rest in peace now! You earned it! Love you so much momma! Your Son JB

  9. It’s hard to understand why people are taken from us, but find comfort in knowing you were a special part of a well lived life.
