I can remember the first time that I met Willa. It was at Northeast High School. From the first time I met her until the last time I saw her, she always had a smile on her face. She was one of the kindest, sweetest, and best natured women I have ever met. Always felt a sweet spirit when I was around her. She loved her family and I know she was loved by them. God Bless you family. Prayers for you all. Deborah R. Andrews
