Sympathy and love to the Wilbur family. Mrs. Wilbur was my Girl Scout leader many years ago and Kathy a dear friend during our days at Hyatt Park! I have such fond memories of this kind lady and the time spent with her and the Wilbur family. May God provide His comfort and peace to each of you now and in the days ahead.
