Just seen you last week and you were called home out of nowhere but that's how it works I can only imagine how beautiful and amazing it is to see our King and your mom, mamaw, Roxie, aunt Lynn, aunt Carol, and Nana Sue. I know they are happy to have their baby boy even though it's painful to family and friends. I know you wouldn't want us to hurt but have joy. I know you wanted everyone closer but like you said we are in the end days. You had a great heart and sharp mind, a great man. I want you to know that you were My great uncle for a reason that is what you were since I was a little guy to now and I'll always love and remember you as uncle Woody but you were much more than that you loved every person and animal. I wish more were like you. I love you and miss you. Tell the family up there we love them and are good. Enjoy your paradise you earned it and there's finally peace in the valley for you unk. May u rest easy.
