Mr. Willie and Mrs. Dot had a beautiful flower garden. Every week they would come to the Church Office and give flowers to all the church secretaries. It brightened our day and made us feel very special. Both were very generous and loving people. We will miss Mr. Willie however knowing he is with his Savior Jesus Christ gives us comfort. Also, he is reunited in heaven with the love of his life, Mrs. Dot.

"Precious memories, how they linger, how they ever flood my soul" can only begin to describe what Brother Willie Hudson was, is , and will forever be to the Friendship Sunday School Class at Kempsville Baptist Church. We will miss him dearly, and his passing has left a void in our class room that will never be filled until we meet again. May God bless.
The Friendship Sunday School Class.

Our deepest sympathy and prayers to the family. May God give you comfort, peace, and assurance during this very difficult time.
Brother Willie was an inspiration to me personally and his testimony of love for God, his family, and country was the story of his life.
