I was saddened to here about Dr. Wilkes. I worked for him at Sunrise Hospital prior to attending medical school. He was always kind and generous with his time and was very supportive of my application to medical school. His letter of recommendation contributed significantly to my acceptance and I have been eternally grateful. My wife (who also worked for Dr. Wilkes ) and I send our deepest condolences.
How sorry I was to receive word that my wonderful sweet cousin had passed away. It was about a year ago that I e-mailed Dan about our uncle Laudis passing away and we wrote a few e-mails to each other. He told me about his family and how proud he was of all of you. He said wonderful things about Barbara and the happy years together. I remember our childhood and growing up together, playing games that are not played any more, but we sure did have fun. It is a very hard time for all of you and having gone through this with my parents and two beautiful grandchildren I feel your pain. At this time one has to let go and let God take over. I send my love and God's blessings to all.
Dear Barbara, Jamie, Patrick, Paul, and Sarah.
Rusty and I were very saddened to learn of your loss. We have been out of touch for a few years, but we have such great memories of our days together at Camp Galilee, Christ Church, and Cursillo. We will never forget Dan in his Mad Hatters hat as you both led Cursillo! And traveling to Boulder City in your motorhome for Cursillo potlucks.
Your Christmas parties were such fun and watching your children mature,how proud you and Dan were of them.
Please help each other through this difficult time. We have both lost our parents and it leaves such a sad and empty heart. Barbara, words can't begin to tell you how saddened we are for you. Please know our love and prayers will continue to surround you and your family. Jo Ann and Rusty Hammond.
A very special man, a very special beautiful family. So sorry for your loss.
Dear Barbara, Jim, Paul,Patrick and Sarah -- it is with deep sympathy that I write to you all. I have such wonderful memories of Working with Dr. Wilkes, and getting to know your family. He was a wonderful man and I loved him dearly. He was brilliant and a very excellent pathologist. We used to laugh a lot and some of my memories still make me smile. One time I was tending your children and I took them to church. When they passed around the sacrament which is bread and water in our church one of the boys said "where's the jam?" In a really loud voice. It was really hard not to laugh. Especially when everyone around us was laughing. I remember you all as really good people and I always enjoyed being with you and being at your home. My prayers are with you for your comfort and peace. Love to you all.
