I am so sorry about great Aunt Mary. I have so many wonderful memories of her and Uncle Richard at the island. She will always be remembered and I'm thankful that my kids all got to know her as well. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I have such fond memories of Dr and Mrs Wilke and family at Pill Hill and later. I am so sorry to learn she has passed. She, not so long ago, asked if I would give her a ride in my kayak. So sorry I didn't do it.
