    I am so sorry for your loss. I have known Woody as long as I can remember, and I loved his smile and sense of humor. Mom sends her love and know that we will be praying for the Lord’s comfort to surround your family at this time. Woody was a joy to know, and he will be missed. We love you and you are in our thoughts and prayers. Love Donna Mae & Alta May Askew

  2. Dear Chantel,
    My condolences over the passing of your grandfather. You spoke of him often and I could tell he was an inspiration to you. I know he will continue to be an inspiration to you and your children though his memory.
    Sincerely, your friend, Michelle
