Judy we are so sorry, words cannot express. We have so many memories of Wiley dating back 23 years ago when we first met you two. Our kids grew up loving Wiley and would come down to visit him to get gum then when the grandkids come along they did the same thing. God bless you and always know we are here.

Junior never met me without a smile. He was a wonderful friend. He treated me equally, despite my deafness and reliance on lip-reading. Whenever there was something he said to me that I was unable to understand, he was patient with me and repeated it until I understood. A true friend with a great human heart. I will miss him. He will definitely be taken good care of upstairs! Valerie and I extend our deepest condolences. — Jim & Valerie Wood

Jr was always smiling and happy, I don't think he ever met a stranger. I grew up across the street from him and knew him as a lifelong friend with a loving and kind heart. To Judy and family prayers for peace and comfort for you and your family.

Wiley was a very wonderful guy. He was the friend everyone loved. I worked with him and feel blessed that I did. He was happy and funny and when he smiled which was a lot, his eyes would smile too. He will be greatly missed. Knowing Wiley he will be happy seeing his family in heaven and making lots of friends too. Prayers for his family, Judy, Stephanie, Ronnie and the rest of his family.
