I am remembering “Mr. Wilson” and all the good times in the Wilson home when I was in high school. I was never quite sure whether he was
pulling my leg or not, but he usually had a smile and a twinkle in his eye. My condolences to Margot and the Wilson family.

Pot luck picnics at Madeleine' and Marion's Normandale Cottage drew all of the family and friends from far and near. Later, when we were visiting my 90+vear old Aunt Marion in Cedarwod Village in Simcoe, Russell was visiting his 102+ year old Aunt (I believe her name was Marian) in the same home! Russell may have be considered quiet, but when he spoke, I listened. A good man.

I will always remember the Boxing Day celebrations at the farm. So many wonderful times--riding the pigs, building forts with the hay bales, bathing in the laundry sinks (after the pig riding), timer on at lunch (or no dessert), riding in the little car in the fields, pony boy--good times. Rest in peace, Godfather.

We know that you will miss your dad but you just have to remember all the good times that you had together.
