Prayers for the family on the loss of a very special man. May God grant you peace
and comfort during this sad time. I always felt a special connection to Wilbur,
probably because we were the same age & always had that cousin bond. I'm so
sorry for your loss but so happy for Wilbur that he is no longer in pain and is with
his heavenly Father.
