  2. Dear Ms. Wilson, i was so saddened to hear that you had passed. Thanks, for being the voice for so many who had no voices even if they were heard. You were an inspiration to me many years ago as I entered the field of working with those limited with disabilities. Thanks for the advice on occasions when I needed some direction. Love, Jerry
