My name is George Wilkinson. My daughter Mary Nell Wilkinson was the team captain of "Tommies" 1981-1982 NationalChampion, William and Mary Ladies Golf team, the only National Championship the college has ever won. Tommie was always like a pregnant mother worrying about how the girls were doing in every tournament they played. My wife and I enjoyed being with her whenever we could. Being from Massachusetts that wasn't often enough. My wife passed in 2006 and I am very sorry to hear of Tommies passing. You have my heartfelt sympathy.
