I asked Douglas to please tell you that I will always love you. Life is fragile, love is eternal. For all the happy times we shared, and all you did to help me & Lelio, we will always remember & be grateful. You have worked devotedly to maintain high standards, create beauty & order in your surroundings, & take loving care of your mother. Rest assured your good deeds will live on in my life & the lives of others. Your diligence, determination, sense of humor, & gentle tenderness will be fondly remembered. When your spirit returns to the light of consciousness, please come near me to hear my cello. I will be playing your favorite songs, sending blessings & love to speed you on to a new beginning in the eternal cycle of birth and rebirth. Letting go of all suffering may you be free and at peace. I am holding you now and forever in my heart. May we meet again! Love always, Ann Wil, I’m so sorry I cannot be with you now, but you are in good hands with two Earth Angels Paul & Douglas by your side. I’m asking them to give you big warm hugs from me. This was sent by Ann West to Wilbur's brother and nephew. She asked that they read it to him in the hospital. Very touching.
