So sorry to hear Aunt Vivian, Gary and Allyn. I remember visiting your home in Danbury and Uncle Wilbur taught your dog some wild tricks. He would always make me laugh. My deepest sympathy to you all from the Jarvis girls.

Aunt Vivian, Gary & Allyn, I was very sorry to hear of the passing of Uncle Wilbur. I can still picture him ice skating on Rogers Park Pond. Doing spins and tricks. May he rest in piece. Jim Bigham
