    Our dearest friend and neighbor Mr. Will;

    We can remember when the property went up for sale in front of us, thinking great,we are going to have some crazy neighbors move in. We ate our words when, you Mr. Will became our neighbor. God sent us an angel for a friend and neighbor. Now God has you as his neighbor.
    You will be greatly missed by us and so many others!!!

    Your friends J.D. & Dolly Duarte
