I am so sad to hear of Wib and wish I knew sooner so I could attend his services. He used to come into the office I worked at and would be full of jokes and he brightened our day. He was truly a wonderful man. My thoughts are with his family.

Uncle Wib you were the last of Mammaw and Pappaw’s children. I hold so many memories of you close to my heart. I remember when you came home on leave and were so handsome in your uniform! You were the best joke teller in the family, too. Always had a kind word for everyone. You will be missed by so many but you are now at peace and no more pain. Just know you are loved so much and will one day be reunited.

I have so so many good memories of spending time with you over the years. All the Sundays we dropped in for a visit and the joint vacations to Uncle Ernie's and Aunt Ava's homes so we could all be together. You were the jokester, the feisty one, the one who helped others. I will always remember your belly laugh. You were a good man Uncle Wib. You were the lone survivor of the clan. I'm happy you are home with Aunt Eloise and all of your brothers and sisters. I'm sure you are joking with them all but in Heaven you have to keep them on the up and up. If your heavenly job is doing landscaping what amazing things you will care for. Soon and very soon we will be seeing you again. Enjoy yourself. No more pain and suffering. No more sorrow. You are home at last. Love you. Alisa
