    Our prayers and condolences go out to CW,s family. He will be sorely missed. As a member of Stones Mill Hunt club for over 30 years, CW was always kind and helpful to me. Not being from the area, I really appreciated that. He always asked about my dad (Creeper) whenever he saw me. It won't be the same not seeing him in his blue pickup. RIP " Hatchet Man".

    Our thoughts and prayers go to the family. I have known CW for many years. I use to go to softball games with Nannie Sue when they worked for MCLean Trucking Company in Richmond when they first met. May have been out of the area for many years but always asked how they were. Be strong and memories of a beautiful life. Bill, Mary Martha and Family Chesterfield VA

    While I didn't get to personally meet CW, as he was working the day we visited (circa 1991-92) on a trip from California, it was very evident how much he was loved by my cousin, Nannie Sue and his daughters. My heart goes out to them for the loss of their Mother and Father in a span of four months. While we're so far apart in miles, please remember we're close in heart. We are here for you all. Cousins Shirley, Barbara and Connie! Love
