My heartfelt condolences to Jane and the family.  Willie has been a friend for over 37 years, he gave me one of my first jobs after I graduated high school. We had many long talks together, he loved GOD and all his children,he was father to my two nephews Jonathan and Joshua, he was a born again Christian.  He and I worked a few years together for Roger and Sanford McCurley at McCurley's Oil Company.  He wasn't perfect as none of are, but he was a good man who worked hard all his life.  I will miss our conversations together on the phone and visits..May the peace of GOD comfort you all as you grieve his physical loss.  But know that as long as you have your memories Willie will always be with you and that if you know JESUS CHRIST as your Savior as he did you will see him again...GOD BLESS ..Luke Allison
