Gary, Steve, Glen, and Mike.... I just saw this post and wanted to say how sorry I am for the loss of such a wonderful woman. i remember many a visit to her home as well as to Mason City to see Willis. I still tell stories about Willis yet today. May God's presence be with you and your entire family during such a time as this. Blessings and Peace to all of you... Jeff
