This is so unreal to me. I am mad as and why? I have lost so many friends but this one here hit me some kind of different way. Wilbur you gave the the words best friends a whole new meaning. You always had my back as I yours and God knows we got on each others nerves and there were times we did some hurtful things to one another but we always forgave each other. I knew I could always come to you and vent or cry to u about Tommy and I did alot of that didn't I? but, you would always listen and give me your opinion on things. You even knew how to deal or put up with me on them days as u called it, flip my script days . I don't see how but u did. U should have gotten a reward for that one. You were my Best Friend and im not sure u even knew that but yes, u were my best friend Wilbur Gildersleeve. I'm just angry and confused... Why is what I need to know. Why did this have to happen to you. I Love You and I'll see you again but until then behave up there and dont be chasing down those pretty angels.
To the family if Wilbur I am so sorry this has happened to yall. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
