I am so sorry for your loss, I have many fond memories created by R. W. May God rest his soul and show him the light of his face.

Ray Williams says:

To Mrs Betty and the Wooten Family. Sorry to here of the loss of Mr. RW. He was a very nice man which my family have known for many years. I always enjoyed talking to him, mostly about fishing. I can remember him always bringing catches of fish to us. Always smiling and not making much of the (HUGE) catch that he just delivered. I will never forget him, as he along with Mrs. Betty are of my fondest memories coming up. I know he will be greatly missed. We will be keeping your family in our prayers.
