Remembering both Mr. And Mrs.Wilson with sweet memories.

To the Wilson family, so sorry for your loss. I remember Cliff quite well when he was a drug rep and I worked for Dr. John Sharpley. Sometime he would get lucky and come on a day when Dr. Sharpley was baking bread in the office. Anna would bring him on back, give him a slice of bread and something to drink while he waited for the doctor. I last ran into Cliff quite a few years ago at Georgia Eye where I was working. Such a nice man. Brings back memories of long ago.

I'm hoping Dad and Mr. Wilson are up there whooping it up. I so enjoyed the times we spent together at Hilton Head. We used to have a pool for the Heritage and I knew Mr. Wilson would be the only one I'd have to compete with. He kept up with the players and so did I. Everyone else was just in it for the fun. We had lots of good conversations while waiting for the next group to come through at Harbour Town. I remember seeing him smile at me as I walked down the aisle at my wedding. I was so glad he was there. It meant a lot to me. Please know you all are in my thoughts and prayers.

Anne Eberhart, Johnson City, TN

Joey, Andrea and Family, I send my condolences and prayers to you all.

CLIF WAS THE BEST FREIND I EVER ARGUED WITH, AND TRUST ME WE DID THAT A LOT IN OUR LATER YEARS. THEY MOVED TO SAVANNAH THE YEAR ANN AND I GOT MARRIED. WE DIDN'T REALLY BECOME CLOSE SOCIALLY UNTIL OUR CHILDREN WERE SCHOOL-AGE. WE SHARED MANY PARTIES IN BOTH OUR HOMES, WENT TO N.C. FOOTBALL GAMES, SHARED AND ENJOYED OUR PLACE IN WESTERN N.C. MOUNTAINS. I HAVE REALLY MISSED OUR EVENINGS WHERE RUTH SAID I CAME BY AND GOT CLIF ALL RILED UP AND IT TOOK HER THE REST OF EVENING TO CALM HIM DOWN. CLIF HAD MANY, MANY NAMES FOR ME WHICH HE USED FREELY, NONE OF WHICH WERE COMPLEMENTARY. I LOVED HER PLANTS AND HELP SHE GAVE ME WITH THEM. I LOVED THEM BOTH, AS WELL AS THEIR WHOLE FAMILY. THEY WILL GREATLY MISSED AND LEAVE A VOID IN ALL OUR LIVES. MAY THEY REST IN PEACE.

My sincere condolences to the family sorry for your loss. May you find comfort from the scripture at 1 Corinthians 15:26 where it says death will soon be brought to nothing. In the near future we will never have to worry about losing our loved ones in death.

I'm sorry for your loss. It is never easy to lose someone we love. The Bible gives a sure hope of a resurrection. The scripture found at Isaiah 25:8 tells us that one day soon God will put an end to death. Please visit jw.org for more comforting information on this subject.
