Your father/grandfather was a giant in every sense of the word. He worked tirelessly to make the world a better place for us all. It was my great pleasure and privilege to know and to work with him on many projects. May memories comfort you and may you have peace through the Prince of Peace.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all the Wilson family and his many many friends and acquaintences literally throughout the world. This man was a legend in his own time. This man touched so many lives during his lifetime that it would be hard to tell his story adequately. He was not a close friend of mine, although he could have been and it would have been my priviledge. I was a member of the class of 1991 for the "University of Hard Knocks". Our class president was Mrs. Robert Byrd and our mascott was U. S. Senator Robert Byrd. This tells his story as to him touching my life. He will be missed by so many people. He is with the lord now.
