    Wilton's memory will live on and on in my soul and truly countless others because God made him love. I remember him from "Pine Valley days", greeting folks who came in, with that sweet gentle smile and "How are youuuu?!" Meaning it like no other. His smile made me smile and it was "spirit knowing spirit" with him. Many years have passed but I am grateful I we saw each other one last time in 2018 at, of all places, a Christmas shop. Fitting really because you were like a Christmas gift to everyone you knew. May God comfort your family and be close to them at this time. I will see you in eternity, Brother Wilton.
