Dada I still miss you so much and it hurts. I wish I could hold you agian. I know you was in pain even through you did not want to tell us. I have had a second set of twins since you became an angle, which I am sure you are aware of. Thank you for being there for me and my children. I NEVER WOULD HAD MADE IT without The LORD and You. We talk about you all the time. People at work say when I mention your name I talk as if you are still here so I must love you. They have no I idea I love you and miss you so much Dada. But you was called home because you was in so much pain and I understand that I don’t want to see you suffer. You are in no more pain. You are gone but never forgotten. I LOVE YOU, DADA

My brothers and I sincerely regret your loss. We are second cousins and I only knew him through his father, Fenton Sr. I’m so sorry that I never got to meet him. God’s peace. Chuck, Allen, Ben and Gail Snowden.

My condolences to the family of Fenton Mike Wilson, Jr. I think Mike was the first son of my father Fenton M. Wilson, Sr. My mother is Doris Wilson-Jordan of Phila. PA. I talked to Mike, Jr. by phone when my father passed away in 1970. I could tell Mike, Jr. was a nice man and we had hoped to meet some day. I’ve been a missionary here in the Philippines for 27 years. My older brother, Mark and my younger sister, Janice and I want to keep in touch with our father’s family.
