    Uncle Wilbur – words cannot express my grief – I will never forget my trips back to Cincinnati, visiting with you and Aunt Vivian and getting into trouble with Wil. I remember attending a few of your softball games and I can say with honesty, you were my absolutely favorite Uncle. Say hi to Mom and dad for me – I’ll be seeing you in a few years.
