  5. When talking about Willard where do I begin! He was truly like a son to me. He kindness was like no other. His laugh was contagious . It would make you laugh even if you didn’t know what he was laughing about. I remember many thing about Willard from going out to hear him play, to a private party even a cookout. He was FUN. Willard & James Frields would always look out for me always. A few times Willard would play out I would want to go but maybe my boys was not going out. Willard would say come on out we got your back.. And Yes They Did… I remember the time I had no electricity in the dead of winter for 2 weeks. Everyday he would come to check on me. Willard and James brought a propane stove for me to cook on and a kerosene heater to keep me warm. The Best things I Love about Willard was his Big Heart and The Story He Told… Yes His Music Also.. I Never Will Never hear the song “Oh Darling” that it will not bring Memories Rushing Back of My Friend – Son Willard… RIP I Love You From The Bottom Of My Heart..β™₯️ Fly High and Play and Sing In Heavens Band.🎸… β™₯️ Love Patty
