Until then, here is a commentary posted below sent to me from a family friend who attended. Her name is Delight. (She gave me permission to share it with you.) It's a delightful commentary that humbled our hearts and warmed our souls.
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you, and the Willis boys, for allowing the rest of us to be part of yesterday (Capt. Billy's November 19, 2014 funeral). I don't know that I have ever been to a service like that where I felt privileged to have been in attendance like I did yesterday. It was a Song of Songs service....that only the Willis boys could have done. What a love feast! "I am my beloved's and He is mine!"
I once was asked WHEN I WAS YOUNG, what it was that I found most attractive in a man......my answer then, and still is, LOVE. When someone loves you it does not matter what they look like, or really much of anything else, they are attractive. LOVE ATTRACTS.
I know you thought the service went long, but it did not feel it. It was as if you three boys invited everyone into some wonderful place where you loved on your father..your mother, and most of all GOD...and in doing that, you loved on everyone present. That service will bear much fruit. Relationship. You left everyone with a good word, and a challenge.
Your folks have one incredible family,
Much love, Delight
