THIS WORLD HAS LOST A GREAT MAN IN HUNTER WILSON BUT HEAVEN HAS GAINED A WONDERFUL SOUL. I REMEMBER AS A CHILD THE DAYS SPENT ROAMING UP AND DOWN DAVIS ROAD WITH ALL THE OTHERS KIDS FROM HOUSE TO HOUSE KNOWING THAT WHICHEVER ONE WE ENDED UP AT WE WERE WELCOMED AND SAFE. HUNTER AND FRANCIS ALONG WITH ALL THE OTHER PARENTS ON DAVIS MADE SURE OF THAT. WE WERE ALL VERY LUCKY KIDS TO HAVE HAD HUNTER AND THE REST OF OUR PARENTS IN OUR LIVES. REST IN PEACE HUNTER AFTER A LIFE WELL LIVED. THANKS FOR ALL THE WONDERFUL MEMORIES.
