Dear Kenny and Sandy;
I was so sad to hear that your
Father has passed away. I will never forget my childhood time when I spent so many days, hours and minutes at your home and
being friends with Sandy. Both Mr. & Mrs. Wilson treated me like I was one of their family. GREAT PEOPLE. I have't seen
Charles in many many years but I know he will be missed by all that knew him. He's in a far better place now and most importantly
he's with the love of his life (Gerry).
Charles good bye my friend and rest in peace. Sandy and Kenny my thoughts are with
you and take care.
Jeanne (Swope) Gilbert
