Mr. Wilson performed his "drunk" theater patron on stage at Variety Arts in LA early 1980's I was lucky to meet him "To you it's toilet paper, to me it's my bread and butter"
Keith Grayson sending belated condolences.
I am the last of the Grayson's and never met Dick,however I knew Melanie and always watched her show,very proud to have known her,I actually knew a star!
My Grandmother, Thelma was fortunate enough to have known The Wilson's and she told me Dick was the funniest man she ever knew!
He had everyone crying with sore stomach muscles by the end of an evening!
I never forgot this because my Grandmother was not prone to levity,hat really impressed me!
For Dick...For more than
twenty years you warned us
not to squeeze the Charmin.
WEEP NOT FOR ME
Do not weep for me when I no longer dwell among the wonders of the earth; for my larger self is free, and my soul rejoices on the other side of pain...on the other side of darkness.
Do not weep for me, for I am a ray of sunshine that touches your skin, a tropical breeze upon your face, the hush of joy within your heart and the innocence of babes in mothers arms.
I am the hope in a darkened night. And, in your hour of need, I will be there to comfort you. I will share your tears, your joys, your fears, your disappointments and your triumphs.
Do not weep for me, for I am cradled
in the arms of God. I walk with the angels, and hear the music beyond the stars.
Do not weep for me, for I am within you;
I am peace, love, I am a soft wind that caresses the flowers. I am the calm that follows a raging storm. I am an autumns leaf that floats among the garden of God, and I am pure white snow that softly falls upon your hand.
Do not weep for me, for I shall never die, as long as you remember me...
with a smile and a sigh.

There is no such thing as "death," it's only an illusion this thick dimension creates. The seperation it creates is real, sadly... But we'll all see those who've passed again! We'll pass! And how exciting right now for Dick! What joy and wonders he's experiencing!
he will never be forgoten he was great actor and a familiar face that will be missed .
I don't think anyone will forget Mr. Wilson's Charmin commercials. Although he lived a long life, no doubt his family misses him tremendously. Peace from the God above can bring solace to your family. 1 Corinthians 1:3,4 My sympathies to you.
Sorry for the loss. I always saw him do the charmin commercials.Up in heaven he will be telling people"Please Don't Squeeze the Clouds". RIP Dick.
Please accept my deepest sympathies.
As the days and weeks pass, and as you return to life’s routine, may you continue to feel comforted by the love and support of family and friends.
Thanks for the wonderful memories. I can't believe how time has past. God Bless your family
If there is Charmin in heaven, he will chastise anyone squeezing it!
I am writing on behalf of Edward and Margery Woodhouse who send their deepest sympathy and condolences.
It always gave me a thrill to see Dick Wilson on tv knowing that he had been friends with my Dad when they both lived in Hamilton, Ontario.
My families thoughts and prayers are with you.
My heart goes out to you at this time and in the days ahead.
You are a childhood memory I'll never forget.
He was a great man to see on TV. RIP Mr Whipple.
I was 11 years old when this commercial aired and he was truly entertaining..May GOD's tender mercies be with you and your family
and may GOD's promises for the future anchor your hope.
Such a talented man who made me laugh and to this day I hear his words each time I buy a pack of Charmin. Mr. Wilson is truly a gifted part of American culture. My deepest sympathies.
Love and kisses Mr Wipple thanks for the wonderful smiles and bringing such softness to our household each day may God now give you a gentle squeeze RIP
I loved Mr. Wilson as Mr. Whipple and was very disappointed when he no longer done the Charmin commercials. God Bless.
Rest in peace and thank you for the warmth.
Thanks for all the smiles. Rest in Peace.
THE WILSON FAMILY
DEEPEST SYMPATHY FOR YOUR LOSS.
GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN MR."WHIPPLE" . LOVED YOUR COMMERCIALS.
My condolences to Mr. Wilson's family. I will always remember the smiles I had when I saw "Mr Whipple" on tv... be it commercials or sitcoms. It's wonderful when you are remembered and Mr Wilson will be remembered by me.
Hi Meg, Melanie, Stuart & Wendy & families
I am Eileen's daughter Theresa and your neice and cousin. I would like to let your family know that we are all sorry for your loss. Uncle Dick was the last of my Mother's siblings.In addition I want you to know what a small world it is as I talked to Francis Simpson today (never met her before) and she asked that I write for her and her family as well. Remember if you ever decide to visit Canada you have many many cousins here and we would love to see you. Perhaps you could give Paul an e-mail address and we could send pictures and reunite.
I will always remember him as Mr. Whipple!! He seemed like such a kind and gentle man. Just looking at his facial expressions could make me smile.
RIP Mr. Whipple! My sincerest sympathy to his family and friends.
Thank you for several hours of entertainment over the years.
Thank you for a memorable character and so many nice memories of a gentler time. You were truly an icon.
Sorry for your loss. He made growing up fun here in Canada.
Rest in peace. He will always be remembered. Our sympathy to the family of Dick Wilson.
What a generous and friendly character Dick was; He always had America laughing. May God Bless the family during the days ahead as we remember a gentle soul.
You won't be forgotten! Every time I see the Charmin, I will think of you as I do now.
To your family....my sincere condolences.
Hi Dick Wilson's family,
Very sorry about your loss. I never did know his real name till now. I only knew him as Mr. Whipple,storeowner and closet Charmin squeezer. Thanks for the memories, Dick. You'll always be Mr. Whipple to me. Bob
I alswys have a smile on my face when I think of those commercials. You were a very good actor to keep us smiling all those years. I still use charmin.
He will be missed. RIP, Mr. Whipple.
I am 56 and remeber fondly all the 'DON'T SQUEEZE THE CHARMIN" commercials Mr. Whippl did. Everytime I saw them, he made me laugh and how I ever kept from 'SQUEEZING THE CHARMIN', I'll never know. He brought alot of laughter to me and I really enjoyed seeing him. He was a fatherly fiqure to everyone andf will be sadly missed.
You have my deepest sympathy on the loss of your loved one. We enjoyed seeing "Mr. Whipple" in the Charmin commercials. He was a fine actor. Mr. Wilson had "special mightiness" because of his long life. Read Psalms 90:10. God promises a resurrection of those in the memorial tombs at John 5:28, 29. His words bring us comfort and give us hope.
To Your Family:
May he rest in peace.He'll never be forgtten.We give thanks to the squeezes in aisles.
Mr. Whipple was such an unforgettable personality Such as Bob Hope, Jackie Gleason, Johnny Olsen, Redd Foxx, Don Knotts, And others before him!!!
Sad about his leaving this earth, but he's in a better place with those mentioned that are unforgettable in their own Right!!
Thanks and if "squeezing the Charmin" is wrong, well, I dont wanna be right!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.
Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."
It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."
God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.
I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.
There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.
If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.
So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.
And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Thank you, Mr. Whipple. May God bless you and your family. P.S. We'll try our best not to squeeze the Charmin.
Amazing how one simple phrase could bring joy to so many people..and for so many years. Loved you..rest in peace..
Dear Wilson Family,
I am sorry for your loss. He will be known forever and to the ages as Mr. Whipple from Charmin. His famous phrase, "Don't Squeeze the Charmin" is heard all over the United States of America and world. Thanks to a man from the Commonwealth, he changed Charmin's image forever. God bless him and his family.
Thank you, Mr. Wilson, for sharing your warmth, wit and humor with us for so many years, not only as Mr. Whipple in the Charmin commercials, but in your guest appearances on one of my favorite comedies, "Bewitched". May the Good Lord grant you eternal rest, light, happines and peace.
Please accept my deepest sympathies.
For many years we enjoyed his Charmin commercials. May God bless and comfort his family and friends
Good bye Mr Wipple
May you rest in peace and your family are in our prayers.
To The Wilson Family
We will miss Mr. Whipple,that smile.
May God Bless you and your Family,
The loss of a love one.
The Lancaster Family
FAREWELL MR. WILSON, YOU WILL BE MISSED BUT REMEMERED ALWAYS WITH A SMILE. GOD BLESS YOU AND ALL YOUR FAMILY
Condolences to all of Mr. Wilson's family and close friends. I life well lived is indeed rewarded in heaven, where an endless supply of clouds of Charmin await Mr. Whipple- so squeeze away in eternal bliss! R.I.P.
WWE WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU, OUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS.GOD BLESS.
While you are mourning the loss of a loved one, others are rejoicing to meet them behind the veil.
Dear Wilson Family...As your Father & so many stars of that era are passing, it seems that a part of our childhood is also passing. Thank-you for sharing your Dad with me. May God bless & comfort you & all your family at this
time. Good night "Mr Whipple"
We will miss you, Mr. Whipple ... we will always remember you as we walk the ailes of the grocery store and we are tempted to squeeze the Charmin. May we always hear your voice as it shouts out to us ... "Don't squeeeeeeaze the Charmin!" God Bless you Mr. Wilson and may you rest in peace!
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well-lived.
I am so sorry about your great lost. I loved seeing him on TV, with that big smile. You all have my deepest sympathy. May these words give you all so comfort.
Help from God
The Bible assures us: “Jehovah is near to those that are broken at heart; and those who are crushed in spirit he saves.” (Psalm 34:18) Yes, more than anything else, a relationship with God can help you to cope with the death of someone you love.
Do not underestimate the value of prayer. The Bible urges us: “Throw your burden upon Jehovah himself, and he himself will sustain you.” (Psalm 55:22) If talking out your feelings with a sympathetic friend can help, how much more will pouring out your heart to “the God of all comfort” help you!—2 Corinthians 1:3.
It is not that prayer simply makes us feel better. The “Hearer of prayer” promises to give holy spirit to his servants who sincerely ask for it. (Psalm 65:2; Luke 11:13) And God’s holy spirit, or active force, can equip you with “power beyond what is normal” to go from one day to the next. (2 Corinthians 4:7) Remember: God can help his faithful servants to endure any and every problem they may face.
sharman is only used my house. I grew up with mr wipple on the tv screen.he is squezing the sharman up in hevan.may he rest in peace.
Deepest condolences to Mr. Wilson's family,
I was fortunate to have known him socially throughout the "show biz" years & I have always admired his wonderful talent. He was a very dear, sweet man.
Dear Wilson family,
I never knew him by name during the 60's and 70's as I would see that commercial of Mr. Whipple telling people " Please don't squeeze the Charmin, " then someone telling him, and I qoute, " Mr. Whipple. " as he would squeeze it back. When I go to the store and we buy Charmin I will always think of him. May the Lord God Bless Him and Keep Him as he's entered into New Life in Heaven and may a Choir of Angels be by His Side, Alleluia, Alleluia.
Im so sorry for your loss. Yes, he made us all laugh. Im sure he is cracking up St. Peter and all the angels in heaven. I will give the Charmin an extra squeeze in his memory.
I was saddened to hear of Mr. Wilson's passing. I worked at the Glendale Centre Theatre years ago where I had the pleasure of meeting the Wilsons.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all in your time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort.
Dear Meg, Melanie, Wendy, Stuart and family, We are so sorry for the passing of Dick. We have wonderful memories of him and are truly grateful for the blessing of his friendship. Our sincere sympathy. Love, The Wakasa Family
Dick Wilson's MR. WHIPPLE was a good natured character and a fond memory from a kinder, gentler television era. Rest in eternal peace, Mr. Wilson, and sincere sympathy to your family.
Dear Aunt Meg, Melanie, Wendy & Stuart,
We were so sorry to hear that Uncle Dick had passed away. Even though we hadn't seen him since we were kids, we were proud to say he was our Great Uncle.
Please accept our deepest and most heartfelt sympathies.
Lynne and Lee (nee Smith) and our families.
God Bless You and Your Family, Mr. Whipple, and thanks for the memories.
He had a smile that you instantly fell in love with!! Funny, Funny man!! Your voice will always stick in my memory - "Ladies, Please don't squeeze the Charmin!" Rest in Peace.
Dearest Great Uncle Dick: We are saddened to find that you have left us. May the dear lord take care of you for the rest of time. Love Cristopher, Renee and Ellie Marchese (Your Great Great Niece!)

I'll keep his family in my thoughts and prayers.
Rest In Peace, Dick Wilson (Mr. Whipple)!
Dear Wilson Family,
Please accept my condolences.
I met your father when I was 6.
I was in a Charmin commercial in 1973 - I will always remember Mr. Wilson as kind and funny even if he liked bath tissue paper a little too much!
May God bless you and your family
i meet dick in the summer of 1985 in sherman, texas. he was at the tv station doing a noon show. my girlfriend and i waited outside for him to come out. he really took the time to talk to us and sign his name ( and we are grown women). then he ask if he could give us a hug and kiss. that really made my day. i always enjoy seeing him on tv shows and he was surprise that i told him that i saw him on hogan hereo and bewitched. told me that makes me his true fan. i still have that paper he sign in my photo album.
