Dear Jayne, Dave, and family,
How very sad you must be to say good-bye to such a loving father. Even though I did not know Mr. Wilds, I am sure he was loving because you, Jayne, are a very caring woman and you were a loving, caring daughter to him.
You have been in my prayers everyday since the evening of ukulele that you brought your dad to emergency, Jayne. You have been through much difficult caregiving in helping him struggle to live life healthy. You have been so faithful.
I will continue to pray for you in your grief and all that you need to do now to see to your dad's estate.
With love and sympathy,
Ann Moeller Barrie

Dave and Jack,
Mark just told me about Mr Wilds. I can still picture him cutting the grass or feeding our crow cookies through your kitchen window in the winter. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
