I loved you from the moment I met you. It's been 50 years and you were always on my mind. I know you walked thru the gates of heaven, your body restored, no more pain. I'm privileged to have had the time I had with you and the memories etched in my mind. I hope to see you again someday.

We remember Gary's love for God, children, his love for Donna and her butterflies. May God comfort the Wilkins family at this time.

Gary was one of my best friends in high school. We shared the same feelings that come with attending high school after having just moved to a different town. I have so many great memories from our high school years together and when he came to visit me after I went to OleMiss. My sincere condolences and prayers for his family and loved ones who I know are missing Gary. We also rejoice in the knowledge that Gary was a strong Christian and he is praising the Lord in heaven without pain or physical restraint. God Bless.
