    I have been a friend and coworker of Will's since he first came to VCU. He was a kind, generous person who I have been glad to call my friend. I will miss him dearly and hope him peace.

    Will was a gentle soul and a caring human being. He was our brother. He helped me patch a hole in my bedroom wall when I moved out of the house I had rented when we were in school. I remember it didn't cost a thing - he had all the materials already. I'll remember him for his decency and always being prepared.
