My heart is broken in light of the passing of our dear and special family friend, loyal Dunjeeite, respected educator, and noteworthy, dedicated community servant. Both Bettye and Willie have been just like family members to the Davis family ever since I can remember. As a couple, the Wedgeworths were emblematic of a loving, caring husband and wife team. Both supported each other and worked together as they persevered to make our world a better place for everyone. I will always love, respect, and honor the life and legacy of Mr. William Wedgeworth, whom I deemed to be a truly great man. Bettye, job "Well Done" in ensuring that your husband received the highest, quality medicare care, especially when he needed it most. May God comfort and strengthen you in the days and years ahead. Much love and reverence.

My family and I were friends of the Wedgeworth for a long time. Have comfort in a life well lived and the pleasant memories. During Willie's graduation week from Dunjee, I performed the role of Willie as first grader entering school. Rest well.
