Mr. Wilson worked with my dad years ago and I remember meeting Mr. Wilson and he was a wonderful person. We spoke several times after my dad passed away and he helped me thru the difficult time. Sorry for your loss, he was a great man.

Mr Harry was such a nice man. He use to cut shapes for me at Kennickell and we had so much fun discussing the shapes and the colors.. He was always so pleasant. My condolences to his family.
