My wife and I wanted to send our condolences to you, the family of Mr. Wilson. I have no doubt that this time is so difficult, but please keep the wonderful hope found in the Bible at Revelation 21:3,4 clearly in mind. That hope and your faith will help you endure. Please take care of yourselves and know that we are thinking of you.
