"I am so heartbroken. Grandpa was and Grandma still is the most influential people in my life. They taught me how to always give 100% of myself in everything I do, be giving and show love. It is hard to imagine my life without him right now, but he taught me to be strong. I owe it to him to mourn for this devastating loss, but then pick up the broken pieces of my heart and live my life as he and Grandma taught me.
Grandpa, I will see you again someday in heaven and you can eat your onion sandwich and I can eat my ketchup sandwich. I love you and miss you terribly.
"So sorry to hear about Wilbert's passing. Every time I saw him he would greet me and he had such a wonderful smile. God be with you all. Diane (Blanchard) Rislow"
"Our sympathies for your loss. I will always remember Wilberts laugh. Your parent were good friends with my parents. He was always so friendly when ever we would run into him. May he rest in peace. Jeff and. Denise (Beirne) Griffin"
"Sherry and Rocky and families, I was sorry to hear of your dad?s passing away. He was a great friend to our parents Bill and Sadie Beirne. I remember stopping at their place quite often when we were little kids. Thoughts and prayers are sent to the whole family!"
