I am very sorry for the loss of this fine man who served his God, his family and his country with dignity and honor. I enjoyed hearing stories of his life from Irene. Irene was so proud of her father and mother. It was warming to hear how he lovingly cared for his precious wife during their last years. My condolences for this dedicated patriot’s family who leaves behind such a great legacy.

I enjoyed when Mr. and Mrs. Wylie dressed up as Mr. and Mrs. Santa Clause. They came to my Sunday School class Christmas social to pick up toys my class had donated. Wonderful couple! My condolences to the family.
