    My deepest condolences to the entire family. Mr. Will was a great man and a great example of what it means to be a Christian husband and father. There are too few men like that in the world today. My life has been blessed by having had the privilege of knowing him and spending time in his presence. He will no doubt be missed by all who knew and loved him.
