Perk AKA "old man" I had only met you twice prior to your illness. After moving you in our home, I not only got to know you, but completely fell in love with all of your little quirks like acting like you wanted to box with me to giving me the one eyed side look. You were an amazing man loved by so many and missed by all. See you in heaven old man. Now fish in that big river in the sky.

Although I have not seen uncle Wilbert in forever, I remember him as one great uncle he actually got me started in welding way back one year visiting granny. He took me to a couple of his jobs sites were he started showing me how it was done. I will miss him.
R.I.P. uncle Wilbert( perk )
God bless to the family and my prayers to you all
