My condolences to the family. May the wonderful memories of your loved one comfort you until God's promises are fulfilled. Matthew 5:5

I hope the Wilson family memories will provide some relief from the sadness that I know you must feel. My prayers for all.

Dear Betty,
Steve and I were saddened to learn of John's passing (Barry Johnson forwarded the obituary information).

We think of you fondly and the fun we had, especially our trip to Cedar Creek Lake.

We do hope that you are doing okay and would love to hear from you. My email address remains the same.
Donna & Steve Suddeth, Naples, FL

We, like all of you, will miss one John Wilson. Fellow IBMer for many years,
neighbors in Dallas to John and Betty and the boys for many years, and friends
for many more. Our heartfelt condolences to Betty and family at this time.

Worked with John in Charlotte NC while with IBM - he was always there with his support and insight into various situations - a great friend.

Sue and I were dear friends of John and Betty during many years in IBM. We remember his great wit, his enthusiasm, and his love for Betty and young John and Brad. John was a terrific athlete in tennis and golf and his good nature showed in everything he did. And he loved the Lord and is with Him now!
