I have a legitimate question in reply to your statement in your post:
How many times in your life did you see willie face to face?
Does not matter, we fellowship in Spirit, not always in the flesh. After 3 years of daily connecting with him, if you have even a little discernment, you will know them by their fruits and their words. I loved that man, as did so very many on here. I don't have to be "face to face" to have the discernment God gave to me after years of praying and going through several tough trials to learn. He was a true brother...not to mention there are/were some on here who knew him personally.
