I so wanted to come to the service for Wilf, but did not have enough time in my schedule. But my prayers and thoughts were with you May & family. I have many fond memories of Wilf~mentor, good friend, encourager and more through my days at PRBI and into ministry. Every time we met after I finished at PRBI he had stories to tell, gave encouragement and would pray with me. He loved to laugh and often had a joke to share. A great humble man of God who set an example to all who knew him. I will also remember Wilf for his love of burnt cookies!! In the old kitchen the ovens did not always work well and the first batch of cookies was always on the dark side, but Wilf told us not to toss them as he loved “burnt cookies”! I pray that you will know God’s strong arms of love and comfort wrapped around you in these days of grieving. Praise God that Wilf is free of pain and rejoicing in His presence and the grand reunion day is coming!

Mister Johnson has gone home~surprise! I really miss this old friend and Mentor of mine at PrBi~ He picked up at the Sexsmith Cafe Bus stop for Greyhound in the deep winter of 1977 ~ 78 while I had to wait almost an hour in the warm cafe while he drove all the way to Grande prairie and look for me, and he said to me, “You must be Norman Oh, welcome to PRBI!” and never mentioned the long drive he made to look for the Indian from Southeast Asia. We had been real friends after all these years: God Bless, and I will build a school here in Southeast Asia one day to remember him, TQ mister Johnson! God Bless U in the heavenly places.

So sorry to have missed the Service! We attended a memorial in our home church! I was in the office at PRBI as Mr. Johnson was in the Public Relations and I remember the miles he travelled and little sleep he got but always ready to go again and always happy. I also remember the things he said at our 25th anniversary! He was a great man and I appreciated him! We pray for your family today May, and in the coming days as you grieve his passing! How wonderful to know he is “free”! God bless you and all those memories of days gone by!

Thank you to the family for the beautiful service for Wilf today. I felt so blessed and somehow I know Wilf and Jesus were smiling down at the large crowd gathered. What a treat to hear How Great Thou Art (by the Chinese choir), Amazing Grace, Because He Lives and To God be the Glory.

At 2:30 pm friends lingered … not wanting to part. This honoured our friend and mentor Wilf the most because he was all about building relationships! God bless you May and family. Thank you for blessing us all today.

Praying and thinking of you May and the family. I will always remember the last time time I saw you and Wilf at Circle of Friends. So good to see you then and have a few words together. You will have many treasured memories. “God Bless ” ..

I have so many fond memories during the time that our paths crossed. Danny and David – during your young years at Sexsmith Secondary and David, in a professional capacity as a teacher; Sharon – our parent-teacher meetings; Brook – our wonderful year in Grade 5; and May – our terrific years as teaching colleagues at Harry Balfour. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire family during this time. May God Bless.
