Not sure what to say?

Dear Adrienne and family,

I've been thinking of you and feeling so sad about your loss. Your father was such a great man. It was so fun getting to spend time with him in Galveston and on Woodsedge. He always seemed to have a smile on his face, no matter what kind of crazy things we teenagers were getting into. (Like jumping off the roof into the ocean or off the balcony into the pool.) Thank you all for the fun times and all the great memories.
I'm so sorry I missed the...

Heartfelt condolences to the Wilde family on the loss of Bill. Bill was instrumental in making me feel welcome as a Bracewell summer clerk in the Litigation Section in 1983 and as an associate in the Real Estate section the following year. He was special - such a personable, interesting man. Together with Carlton, they were such wonderful ambassadors for the firm, following the tradition of Searcy and Fentress.

I first met Mr. and Mrs. Bill Wilde while working at Grovewood Gallery in Asheville, NC. Whenever Bill and Ann came into the gallery, they had such a gracious, loving way about them. Bill always had a kind word to say and a gentle smile. Soon after meeting, we discovered we were neighbors in Montreat, NC. As a matter of fact, we can see each other's homes across the valley. It was always comforting to be in Bill's (and Ann's) presence.

When I joined Bracewell in 1990, Mr. Bill Wilde was my assigned partner. He was a true gentleman and class act. I have always respected him and his family. My prayers are with his family and those who knew and loved him.

Adrian, et al;

Thoughts and prayers are with you all during these darkest of dark hours as well when the sun comes out again.

May memories of good times and happy occasions be your rock and your strength as well as peace that surpasses all understanding.

I first became friends with Bill in 1951 at the
College of William & Mary. He was an outgoing
personable individual and remained a good friend
thru the years. We moved from Alabama to Houston
in 1969. We send our condolences to all the family and friends
