Shayne, thank you. I heard Will's mom (my sister) and dad speak and share stories of you and Will often. I know you loved him and miss him too. We will see him again in our eternal life with Jesus. Try to smile as we are, between the tears, with the wonderful memories of our Will. Take care and stay safe. Aunt Jean

From Star Choices Staff Michael McCune,
I am sending my dearest condolences to you and your family for the lost of Will David Oglesby. As a staff person I was very close to Will. We had so many days of laughter and good times that I can't even count. Will was a true loving person toward everyone. He loved people. He was the bridge between all his housemates in his house at Huntcliff. He would do something for each and every housemate out of the kindness of his heart daily. He always felt sympathy for anything they felt bad about and he would try to console them in some kind of way if he could. They all could count on him getting something for them or paying attention to their needs. He enjoyed showing off his movies to all his housemates and staff. We often had movie time because of Will. He would suggest it. Will loved marvel and superhero characters. Marvel comic characters like Spider man, Superman, Hulk, Power Rangers etc. He was very independent about what he wanted at times. If Will felt some kind way about something he wanted or didn't want to do he let you know. He loved to laugh a lot. We had a ton of private jokes that only him and I shared. His parents told me one time that when they took him home he asked about me until he was able to see me again when he got back. I loved the way Will said my name. He's one of the only people I know that was in my life that said my entire name. "Michael". Every one else normally called me Mike but not Will. He would say my whole name. It was the way he said it and the term of endearment I felt in his voice. Will often met me outside at my car when I came in for my shift. We had our own private time that consisted of him and I getting in my car quickly and driving down to the bottom of the hill of his dead end street turning around and driving back to the Huntcliff driveway to park. We was two men just having our male bonding moment together. Will also remembered certain task around the house that I didn't have to worry about because he was there. He would keep up with putting out the trash and getting the mail from the mail box daily. Will also was able to read. He use to get the mail and read the words off the envelope because he knew which person that mail was for. He loved that. He also did that with the TV channels he wanted to watch. He would find certain shows on TV and tell me what they where even if he never saw them before. He was able to read different things on different occasions. He loved when I told him he was smart. We would both gesture to each other he was smart by pointing our index fingers to our foreheads repeatedly. He also liked when I put on my glasses and say I got glasses like you. He would laugh and say Michael then hug me. Will loved to get out. Even for a joy ride to just look at everything. The world was interesting to him. It was one of his favorite things to do. He loved his parents dearly. He made sure I dialed there number at least twice daily in the morning and before he went to bed. Speaking to them made him sleep sounder at night. He like to sleep in sweat pants and he loved to browse through his I pad to find rock music videos, marvel comic things or any lion king shows. You could always find Will singing to himself his favorite song from the "Lion King" "Circle of Life" every other day. Will loved animals but he really loved cats. Will had a neighbor cat that actually seek him out daily just to have Will rub his head outside the door of the Huntcliff house in his neighborhood. He also loved the cat he had at his parents house also. I loved that at the dinner table Will would grab everyone's hand and ask me to pray before we all ate. He was the king of his castle at Huntcliff. Will was really someone I would call a friend. He told me he loved me more than once as well as I told him that also. Him not being here is so odd to me almost not real. He left me with a lot of good memories of him. I'm truly going to miss my friend Will. God bless you all for birthing a wonderful person like him. The world was a better place with Will in it.

Thank you Michael for sharing this. We are shattered and broken, but we know Will is rejoicing with Jesus and loved ones. I love Will like my own. Aunt Jean
