I am so sorry to hear of your loss, but we will soon be with Wilbert ! I accepted the Lord as my Savior on Oct. 12, 1975, and from that time on Wilbert had a big part in my Christian growth. At that time he was a Deacon, and taught Sunday School, and I really enjoyed his teaching. One GREAT Brother !
