my loving husband willie departed this life on Jan 25th 2015 we met march 1980 four years later we were married, Willie was a loving husband I will miss him dearly, and will forever love him. We spent lots of good times together each year we took vacations together, we travel to Barbados that was his favorite place. he loved the beaches, hotels and of course the food. during the years of his sickness I took care of him at home, I actually quit my job so I could give him the care he deserved. I refused to take him to the nursing home for long lerm care. Thank my GOD for the knowledge and strength he gave me to preform that task for 6 years. My sweet husband rest in peace in GOD care. my weeping and grief has just began I know I can depend on my God. Willie would want me to be strong and move on with my life. Thanks to all my friends and family who prayed with me.,Tidewell Hospice and Roberson funeral home staff your support were greatly appreciated.All my love to my sweet baby.

Rest in Peace Uncle Willie. While we will never know why your wife deceived us and did not share when your actual funeral services would be held, know that we loved you best. You are now in heaven with your parents Leroy and Helen Byrd, your brothers JC, Doll and Harvest and your sister Helen. I'm writing on behalf of your sister Annie, brothers James Edward and Leroy as well as your daughter Brenda. Lovingly submitted by your niece, Deidre
