Not sure what to say?

Mr. Wilkins was such a special, big-hearted, talented person. He did perfectly beautiful work and was a consummate craftsman. I felt honored when he worked on our family pieces.

My sympathy goes out to his wonderful family. You have a fine father to follow.

God's blessings on each of you, and feel God's strength enfolding you because we know that Mike is in a better place.

Mr. Wilkins has been a good friend to our
family for years, and we are thankful we
were privileged to know him. His devotion and expertise as he restored our family furniture showed his abilities as a Master Craftsman, as well
as his concern for us as friends.

I have just learned of Mike's passing from Mrs. Balllinger. I am so very sorry for your, and our, great loss. Mike was a truly wonderful person with exceptional skill with furniture. He was a master craftsman and irreplaceable in Roanoke. Please accept my, and my family's, deepest sympathy. May God be with each one of your family for always. Most sincerely, Carolyn Patterson

You was a great friend Mike. I always enjoyed visiting you at your shop and catching up on life. I had known you for 20yrs. You will sadly be missed by me and remembered in my heart. I will miss spending time with you going on deliveries and pickups with you. The work you did at your shop was amazing. I would have to say you was the best refinisher I ever knew hands down. I've seen some wonderful work you have done over the years. Finishes I know will last a century brother. We know we'll...

It seems it was a short time ago we were playing music and just being teenagers. We both grew up and went separate ways. Though we didn't get to see very much of each other, I know you loved me just as I loved you. You always called me on my birthday. Even while you were going through all the medical issues, you still called me, concerned more about others than yourself. But that was you, you always put others first. You called me on Tuesday and we spoke for a while, and at the end of the...

To the family of Mike, We are deeply sadened by this. Mike was a wonderful man! We really enjoyed talking to him over the fence. Jimmy will miss his buddy. Thoughts & Prayers are with you all!
