    My heart goes out to anyone that knew Mr. Willison. I personally didn’t knew him but My dad was a trucker most of his life driving the 48 states and at the end local in the state of florida. It seems like Mr. Willison put lots of miles driving. The right words at the right time is soothing to the grieving heart. The bible is full of comforting words and I would like to share some at this time. In the book of Psalms 34:18 in part says, “Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted”. Even though God can’t be seen but he is close to the Willison family and anyone that was close to him. Thru praying, Jehovah wants us to throw our burdens on top of him, especially now, and in result, he will sustain us in these difficult times. God wants us to open our hearts and talk to him on how we feel. I know a praying does one good cause my dad past away several years ago and it helped me very much so.
