My condolences on the passing of Wilkie. I knew him from the bowl-a-mat in Paterson. He was a fatherly image to me. My prayers for his family.

My condolences to the Wilkie family. I very much enjoyed my conversations with Bill at Lakeview. He was a good roommate to my Uncle Ray and was always a gentleman. RIP.
