    Even though Mr. Wilson had a long and happy life we are never ready to say goodbye to our parents. My heart goes to Alverta and the children. Gather your wonderful memories and keep him close in your heart. He was a very cheerful person always giving smiles where ever you met him.

    Aunt Alverta, I can not say how very sorry I am. Uncle Wilson was and still is one of the best uncles I could have had. I know he had a kind and caring heart. Mom loved him alot, but I know that he knew that.
    You all are in my thoughts.

    Many years have passed but I will always cherish my childhood memories of visiting Helen and your family throughout my childhood. It was always a welcome home full of love and friendly conversation. Know that you are in my thoughts and prayers at this sad time.

    My Hoffman family, I give heart felt prayers and love to you all.
    On earth your circle is broken and painful but in Heaven their are complete and joyful.
    When I think of Uncle Wilson I alway get a smile I loved his teasing and arguing style. And of course the stories Mom would tell of him and Aunt Alverda when they would visit Aunt Alice.
    Love and God Bless,

    Dear Aunt Alverda and my precious cousins,
    My heart has ached since I heard the news of Uncle Wilson’s passing.
    He was truly my favorite uncle, I loved him dearly. I have so many fond memories of growing up and coming to the island where the first place I would run to was Aunt Alverda’s house so I could see everybody.
    I am very sad that I can’t be with you today, but know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I hope that you find comfort in knowing what a terrific person Uncle Wilson was and will always be in our hearts.
    Love you,
    Doug and Carol Smith (Schroon Lake, NY)
