James, Ronnie and Tony, I just heard the news of Willie Mae's death. There are no words to express how the loss of a spouse and Mother affects you. Just know you are in my thoughts and prayers. Willie Mae was always a kind and caring woman. When I would meet her out shopping somewhere, she always had a smile on her face, a hug, and a kind word for me. She will be missed deeply. Praying for you all, Luann Hoyle Butler
