Guest Book Highlights

September 15, 2014 "Wow!!! What a legacy to leave behind. I am so honored to learn of Gerald Wilson's life story. He must have lived a respectable life to have lived so long. He must have been a model husband and father to have a family remain by his side to the end. It does my heart much good to have learned of Mr. Wilson's love for Jazz and of his many, many accomplishments. Surely such a man is precious in God's eyes. May this family find much comfort through prayer. (James 4:8)" - Raynell and Brenda (FL)

September 15, 2014 "My dad Leo met Gerald Wilson while they both played with Jimmie Lunceford. Later, Gerald asked my dad to join his band to play woodwinds. He did, and this collaboration, and of course, the whole history surrounding what was going on in the West Coast Jazz scene really anchored my family's heritage in terms of art and culture. We are very proud that our father was his friend and collaborator. I am privileged that I had the opportunity to spend a little time with him. God Bless him for what he left us." - Lance Trammell (Santa Ana, CA)
