    Regrettably, we all know too well the grief of losing a loved one. Happily, soon that grief will turn into joy when we welcome our loved ones back to life on a paradise earth (John 11:32, 38-44). Picture the reunions as dear friends and relatives, once separated by death, see Willie again on an earthly Paradise—yes, to live forever!

    Thank you "Wood" for all the great memories we had working together at Krotz Springs Refinery. It was a wonderful 30 years. You've always been there just to lend an ear and talk about work, Penn State and LSU football, family and just hang out. You were a person that I always looked up to and modeled my patience after. You were a great friend and will be sadly missed. Thank you again for all the great times we had.
