Uncle Willard, I don’t remember it, but I was told he babysat me when I was a baby!!! What I do remember is how sweet and kind he was to me when we visited my grandparents and him (which occurred once a year since we lived in Kansas) ….took me to the WI fair, swimming in the Lake, and I think once to see the Milwaukee Braves play. A wonderful uncle with a beautiful soul. To Carol, Jill, and Carrie ..all our love for healing and peace.
