Dear Jeannette and family-
Teca and I are sad with Wick´s passing and we ask God to comfort you. We came to Brazil much later and didn´t have a chance to get to know you very well. What did shine through in in that brief contact however was a deep love and dedication to the people of Brazil. That love did not dim when you returned to the States. We thank God that he sent you to Brazil filled with His love so you could share it with others. Our love, Gordon and Teca Greathouse

Dear Wofford Family, my Christian sympathy goes out to you. May your memories be pleasant as you go from day to day. I am priviledged to have known you in Brazil when I was there and in years since then. Visiting in your home in Lins and working with you on the COGEIME Committee was was a pleasure. May God continue to give you peace and strength.

Jeannette, we are so sorry that Wick has gone. I loved and appreciated him so much during out time in Brazil and then in our all-too-brief contacts in Orlando. I pray that the Spirit of Jesus of Nazareth will be with you to comfort you in this time of grieving.

Much love, Fred and Argentina Morris

Wick's death is something that brings a deep sorrow to a multitude of friends who loved him exceedingly. Among all persons that I met throughout my life few brought so much joy and admiration to my soul like him especially in the production of the curriculum and literature of Christian education. The memories we have are much out of his evangelical commitment and wit. He is an unforgettable person, unforgettable indeed. He was quite a rare person. I am sure that the memorial service will be full of sadness for his departure but that will be fully compensated by the overflowing of these wonderful memories of him.
