I remember meeting Dr Wilder for the very first time in my life when I was 3 when my brother who was one year old and I had double pneumonia. He came to our house and gave us both a shot. Over the years he treated our whole family of 13.I married and was gone for 30 years Dr Wilder was semi retired by then. I took the job of Wesley Nurse and he was Chairmen of my health committee as I worked at the Methodist church for Methodist Healthcare Ministries. He and Dorothy were with me almost daily planning Health Fairs, we started a huge prescription assistance program, Angel Food Ministries program.I called him for advice on some really sick patients. This was all charity work for him
He so loved the people of Brooks and surrounding counties. When he turned 90 Santos Gonzales had a very well attended celebration at his pharmacy in his honor. I learned so much from him even after having been an RN for almost 30 years I continued to learn from him. We will never ever have a man with a gift from God to heal people in this town again. He continously read and studied about medicine. I learned so much from him and he was God's gift to me by allowing me to learn medicine from the best Dr Ever. Even though I had worked and graduated from UT school of Nursing and hospital. I miss him and Dorothy the backbone of our church and community. I saw them daily. My second set of parents finally together in heaven. I love them both and will miss them deeply.

Our deepest condolences to all the Wilder family! He was a much loved man. He always had a smile for you when you went to visit him.
A little something about Dr. Wilder:
About 7/8 years ago or so??? On one of my visits to Falfurrias, my cousin Armando (Mando) Barrera, deceased, took me to this little restaurant on East St. Mary's. As we sat, he immediately noticed Dr. Wilder and party having lunch. He said "Jr., as the family called me back home, look, there is Dr. Wilder."
I then turned and I just had to go and say hi to him. As I approached, I put my hand on his shoulder and said "Dr. Wilder, and he turned to see who it was, I am Arnold Barrera, Alicia's and Arnoldo's (Chico) son. And he, without missing a beat, said "oh yeah, Mr. Cherry Pink" as he smiled at me! I was absolutely floored and stunned of the memory that he still had of me of 1960 when I was a senior in high school.
He was such a great man in the office and on the streets of Fal.
He will be remembered and missed by all the people that he touched.
God bless you Dr. Wilder. RIP.
