    This is my next door neighbor and very good friend. She has been taking care of me until she got sick and I will be forever grateful. I hate to lose her but this year has been bad for her and I am grateful she doesn’t have to suffer any more. She was a fine person and will be missed.

    Irene Wilson was a dear friend to my Mom, Mary Beth Cauthon, when they worked in the Courthouse. I will forever be grateful to her for the love and friendship she and her husband extended to both my parents. She will indeed be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. Especially my OHS classmate Mike Wilson and his wife, my sister Sharon’ s class of 79 classmate, Krista Wilson. God grant you peace at this difficult time.

    I loved your Mom and always enjoyed visiting and spending time with her. She and your Dad were both long time, faithful friends of my parents (George and Donna Houston). I will truly miss her, but she has had some rough times lately and I’m glad she is free of her struggles. My condolences for your loss, she was a great lady. I like to imagine Charlie welcoming her with open arms, both with big smiles!
