  • Webbie was a classmate of mine through 12 years in Fredericktown and was a really good person. He was a man of principle and did not hesitate to let you know where he stood.
    I saw him several years ago in the hospital in Columbus and quite frankly thought he was on the way out then but he had a fierce desire to live and I am sure he will be truly missed by many in the area.

    My condolences to his family.

    God Bless,
