Wendy and Eric,
I love my Uncle Willie and know that he is waiting for us all when we join him and the rest of our family members that have gone before us to prepare a place for us.
I am so happy and blessed that I got to see him on March 7, 2020 with Barbara and Harrison when they visited with my parents, Teddy and Louise Orvin.
We may not know a lot about each other but I love you guys so much. I pray comfort during this time of hurt. Every time you start to cry remember something funny about your father and turn your tears into laughter. Celebrate his life! No matter what we will always be cousins.

Jesus said, Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. My Fathers house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going. and "Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."
John 14:1-4 and 14:27 (NIV)
