    Norman and I have loved Mr. Wilbur and Ms. Joyce for many years. They have always been special to us and so very caring! We praise God for his long, happy years of life, and will continue to pray for Ms. Joyce, and all the children, grandchildren, and great-grands as they deal with him not being with them. He was such a hardworking, giving man and was always willing to help others. May you all know our prayers are with you.

    Mr.,Wilbur was a man above the fray who’s wisdom and council I personally cherished when I was on Kingsland City Council. He was sterling! I would travel by Peeples Cemetery, see his car and check on him as I could not imagine his anguish over a father still wrenching over the loss of his sons. I’d shake the window on his car and he’d wake up and say I’m just napping. With a wet eye. I’ll miss him and I take peace knowing he’s reunited with his boys. Bless you Mr. Wilbur, fellow veteran and your family. Your brother in arms. Warren R. Bennett, St Marys

    Mrs. Joyce and your family have always been somehow connected to mine my whole life. Growing up with your children, attending school and church was always a joy. I never saw Mr. Wilbur in anger, he always offering help to anyone who may have needed it. He will truly be missed and difintely be missed. Much love and prayers to you and your family through this time.

    So sorry for your loss. Your family has been and will remain in my prayers. The Readdick family was one of the first families we met when we came to Camden County and has always been special to my family.
