    So sorry to hear about Woody’s passing. He was such a nice and caring man. Woody was a dear friend to my dad (Dean Teeters) for many years. Now they can fish and talk for hours in heaven together. Praying for comfort for your family at this time.

    Woody was a kind man and a great friend to my parents, Dean and Kathleen Teeters of New Market. It was so enjoyable to listen to my father and him tell their fish stories. RIP Woody.
