  3. To Robin, Mother Wilson and family, my heart grieves with
    you this day. Mr. Wilson was a great teacher and tangible example of the
    gospel. Such an awesome dad, husband, church leader, neighbor, friend and
    so much more… I praise God for having the opportunity to know him and the
    legacy of faith and love he has deposited into his family. There are no words
    to fill your void. Our hearts are broken, yet his spirit is free to worship at
    the throne. Thank you Lord, for blessing us with Bro. Wilson.

    We extend our heart felt sympathy for you and your family in this time of sorrow. Our prayers go out to you and your family that God will help to guide and direct you in the path He would have you to go. And hold you in His mighty hands to comfort and keep you. May the echoes of father’s voice forever be in your heart and help to uplift the wonderful memories that you have of him. I pray that your Mother will always know that as he was by her side in life, so shall he continue to be by her side as he now looks over her and comforts her with heart felt love from heaven. Your father no longer has to sing ‘Precious Lord take me home’…for he is now in a home not built by hands, but by God for his chosen children.
