    My sympathies, love, and prayers for Aunt Willa Mae’s family. She was a wonderful, loving woman of God, who loved a good laugh. She often sent comic strips or jokes from the paper or magazines to her sister Lillian, my mom. She liked to make people laugh and feel good. She was full of love and caring, doing what she could for people. She was one of my favorite people, a great aunt. I love her very much.

    Grandma, I miss you so much. She was the kindest most loving lady i have ever met she cared and loved me unconditionally. She was so kind to everyone and just loved people she was a servant for God. She was always non stop cooking for and helping those in need even when they hardly had any money she would make the food and Grandpepa would fix anything that needed fixing. I remember one time i went with them to an elderly ladys house grandma took enough food it seemed for a week and me and grandpepa went outside to fix her door while grandma cleaned up her house. She always fed me and made me feel loved . My clothes would be washed and pressed for when i took a bath. It was wounderful how i felt so taken care of . She called me little Dale and Grandpepa big Dale becuase she would call grandpepa Dale and i would come running she would laugh and say now dale ray i meant big dale and then grandpepa would start laughing. Grandma i miss you and love you and im so blessed to have had you in my life as a young boy you showed me that a love for people was more important than stuff. So glad to now you are going to Heaven . Please tell big Dale little Dale said hello and i miss you both so much.

    Willamae had such a tender, loving heart for others. I don’t believe I ever saw her think of herself before someone-else. She was always busy, working for her family and friends – all the while with a smile on her face. I never heard her say a mean thing about anyone. She was so full of joy and laughter. I remember the first time she said she could play the harmonica. She got it out and began a lively tune, keeping time with her foot. Then and there I thought, is there anything you can’t do? She loved my grandpa, Dale, with such devotion and tenderness. It left a lasting example of marital love for me. She was always kind and caring toward myself, Sophronia and Dale after our grandmother passed away. I know, without a doubt, that she loved the Lord with all of her heart. I look forward to seeing her again in our true home, in heaven one day. Until then, Willamae, you ran a good race and fought the good fight, keeping you eyes on the prize. And now you have it. Go in peace, love, Serena.

    Pat, Don, and Kay and Family,
    I am sending my deepest sympathy to each one of you upon the loss of Willamae. May God comfort, encourage, and strengthen each one of you during this difficult time. I will continue to keep each of you in my daily prayers/thoughts.

    Since I was about 10 or 12 years old, I had known Willamae due to Claude and her being the houseparents at the Childrens Home and attending the Curry Street Congregation.

    I thought the world of Willamae! She always had friendly disposition and always a listening ear when something was troubling you. I loved her laughter and easy going personality too! Even after she started attending West 160 I was able to see her around town and I enjoyed the times we did get to visit and talk with each other. She was very supportive of us raising our son, Corby Lee, who was diagnosed with dwarfism at birth. Willamae thought Corby was special and that all would turn out well for Corby due to the parents he had been born too. She was Right!

    May God bless each one of you.

    In Christian Love,
    Amber(Cozort)Redburn
