  2. I’ve known Woody since we were 4 years old. Always had a welcoming smile. Years would pass, but when we met up again, it was like only a couple of days had passed. We will all miss you(WYHS, Class of ’61’), but you will never be forgotten. See u later, Woody.

  3. A friend for many years. Always had a smile and he and Maggie shared a great life together. A very generous person and I was glad to have him donate time at the Katallasso Clinic with me. He will be missed.
