We were so sorry to hear about Woody's death, Denise. Remembering him from school and from the golf course, too - he was a good guy. Such a hard time for you and your family. God go with you.

No matter whether it was truth or fiction, there was no better story teller ever than my brother-in-law ... affectionately known to me as Foode Willips. You will be dearly missed Foode, but I am grateful that you are no longer enduring the bitter health challenges you faced. You fought hard for a long time. Now be free as God wraps you in his arms and welcomes you home. With love and admiration ... until we meet again. Care Bear.

We are so sorry to lose Uncle Woode, but feel so blessed with the many memories we have with him. Uncle Woode always put a smile on our faces with his stories and jokes. Steve says the best Spring Break of his life was visiting Arkansas with his buddies and his dear Uncle Woode. They camped, hunted, fished, and shared stories; wish we could do that all over again. We love you Uncle Woode, and although you are no longer with us, we will cherish the memories created. Love, Steve, Jenny, and Emma

Denise, I had no idea Woody was so bad; my heart goes out to you and the rest of the family, especially Cody, b/c I know how close the two of them were. I don't know what else to say except I'm sorry and will be thinking about you.

Denise, Bill and I just can't believe that Woody has passed on! We are so sad about that and know you and your family must be so devastated. You are one of the sweetest people I know and we loved Woody. He always had something to say to make us chuckle. You and your family will be in our thoughts and prayers that God will bring you strength and peace. We are so sorry for your loss.
