    Never has there been a lovelier person. I will always remember her beauty, kindness, and the twinkle in her eye.
    My sincere sympathies go to all the Lowe family.

    Please know I am sending my thoughts and prayers to your family. Loved Wil as did my mother Joanie Jay. Remember a very fun Saturday night dinner with those ladies and Wil just had us in stitches. Wil was always one of my favorites of my mother's friends. Hugs to all

    Wil was such a beautiful, sweet lady. I enjoyed working with her many years when I was at Dixon, Odom. She will surely be missed.
