Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. We didn't know Ms. Willis on a personal level, but from seeing her a lot at Walmart. My three kids loved her and she always took the time to stop what she was doing to talk to them or just to cut up with them. I'm sorry I didn't even know that she had been sick. We will all miss her sweet face. She was a blessing to know for such a short time.God bless you all....

Bren we love you and look forward to being with you in heaven. Words are not enough to let your family know how much you will be missed by my family. Love you all and God Bless.
