It was with a sad heart that I read the notice about your Dad in our local paper over the weekend. I have so many great memories of fun times at 75 Gladman. Mr Wilson was always so welcoming of the girls friends and treated us like part of the family. He always had such great stories to tell, and inspirational pieces of wisdom to share (May I say this) and the best hugs and kisses going. He was always so patient with our antics and there were many. My heart goes out to you ladies and may your memories of such a wonderful man fill your hearts forever and bring you peace.

Dear Suzanne, Diane, Michelle, Natalie, Jackie and families:

Just a short note to let all of you know our thoughts and prayers are with you in your time of sorrow.
Hoping your day is brightened in some small way by knowing someone thinks of you and cares alot the way we do.
Take one day at a time and hopefully as time passes the pain will ease.
It is never easy to say "so long", to let go of a hand. It is never easy to bid farewell to someone who is so dear to you. In your sorrow may it help to know that we share in your grief.
Just remember if you need a listening ear I am only a phone call away.
Unfortunately we did not find out about your father's death until the day of the funeral. It was too late to call or send flowers as we were out of the country. We will be down South for the winter months but I will be sure to give you a call shortly.
Once again we love each and every one of you very much and was so sorry to hear of your loss.

Roy was my older brother and always was an inspiration to me. Although we were apart from birth he was very influential in my life whether it was in sports or in other life activities.

I will miss him.
