Howard, Dennis & Families--My heart was broken to learn of your parents passing. Rev. Wiley was such an integral part of my life for more than fifty years. I remember him from my childhood, especially singing "God Has A Way." He married us and dedicated both our children. We wish you God's Blessings.

Dennis, Christine and Family --

We're so saddened to learn of Rev. Wiley's passing, and certainly so soon after the passing of your mother as well. Truly, those united in life are now united in eternity! We are so grateful for the lives they led and the example they set for so many of us. Your father counseled us before we married. He must have done a good job -- we're still hanging in there after 21 years! :) AND he catachized Terence for his ordination. Certainly, he was always one of our favorite people.

May you all be blessed and rejoice in their legacy. We love you!

I was truly saddened upon learning of Reverend H. Wesley Wiley's passing. He baptized me thirty-one years ago. Rev. Wiley was one of those rare individuals who exemplified character and unwavering moral values. He was a supportive individual with a wonderful and gentle soul. I can recall him often singing one of his favorite hymns, "I Am On The Battlefield for My Lord". When you recall the words in the song, I'm sure you can picture Rev. Wiley greeting the Savior with a smile as he appointed his soul a place in Heaven.

The world is a better place for his presence and contributions. I count myself honored to have known Rev. Wiley.

To the Wiley family, I share my thoughts and prayers in your loss. May you be comforted by your memories of such a wonderful man. Please accept my heartfelt condolences.

The righteous perish and no one ponders
It in his heart; devout men are taken away,
And no one understands that the righteous
Are taken away to be spared from evil.
Those who walk uprightly enter into peace,
They find rest as they lie in death.
Isaiah 57:1-2
