So sorry for the loss of such a great inspiration to so many. I fondly remember Saturdays when Mrs. Wilson would come into Neill's Grocery in Troutman to do her weekly shopping. It was always a wonderful experience just to get a few minutes to speak to this wonderful child of God. I would love to get a chance to speak with Lydia and Steve--it has been a very long time since I have seen either of you!! I would have tried to get to the service,but I have a late case of the flu that WILL NOT GO AWAY!!
Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you all. Kenny Overcash
