I was sorry to come upon the notice of Wilbur's death in the May 19 New York Times. Prompted by work on a family tree, I had looked him up on the internet several weeks earlier and phoned him to reminisce about our friendship as boys when we lived on the same street in Springfield, Mass. We used to walk to Forest Park to play tennis, and on several occasions Wilbur arranged for me to join his family for dinner. Unfortunately we lost touch after my parents separated and my mother, sister and I moved to Washington. I am impressed to read of Wilbur's generosity to good causes after he became an adult, and I would like to convey my good wishes to his family.

I am so sorry for your loss. I know losing a loved one is hard to go through, I will keep you in my prayers. May you draw close to God at this time.
