Sissy, Angela, Mark and family, my prayers are being lifted up for all of you. Alzheimer's is a terrible disease that my family experienced with our mother. W.C. was one of a kind and meant a great deal to all of us that knew him. There were still occasionally glimpses of W.C's. strong but quiet and fun loving personality. I pray that your family are comforted by the fact that he is no longer suffering and know that the love he had for his family, lives on. I have such wonderful memories and love for this precious family.
