    Dear Caroline: It was with great sadness to learn of Wilf’s passing. Having known you both for the past 25 years, your friendship was always valued. I know my late husband, Peter Wesley, so enjoyed visits with Wilf,telling stories and laughing with one another. I remember back in 1989 when one of our horses died unexpectedly it was Wilf who readily came with his truck to assist us in its removal. He was a very kind and friendly man with a wonderful sense of humour! May your many memories bring you comfort during this time of sadness. I hope it helps somewhat to know that others are keeping you and your family close in thought. ~ Kindest personal regards, Donna

    Caroline and Family
    It is very sad to hear that Wilf has passed away. He was a very nice person, I really enjoyed meeting you both and chatting about the weather or what ever the topic brought up.
    I knew Wilf’s grandfather Amos Amos, his father and one of his brothers.
    He will be missed.
