    Vanessa, words cannot express my deepest sympathy during the loss of Brother Willie. He was a very friendly guy. When my husband and I first met him at FBCSH, it felt as though we had known him in all of our lifetime.
    Prayers and condolences to you and the family.

    My deepest sympathy to Vanessa and the Johnson family. I loved my spiritual brother and my buddy. When Willie walked in a room you knew Big Willie was there, not so much because of his size but becaus of his smile and the love he had for God. I will forever miss my buddy, especially when the male chorus sing again at FBCSH. I can imagine Willie is saying scripture from II Timothy 4:7-8. Rest on Soldier, Rest On!
