Grampa Bill came into my life when I was a surly teenager. He welcomed me none-the-less and served as a role model on the few occasions we were able to meet. He evaluated my driving at one point; giving me good marks. I was being soo careful. He also taught me about the dog track - my first ever bet won me the daily double. He was there for my college graduation and we vacationed in TN from time to time. I loved that he and Gramma got to fix up an old house, live by the lake with a boat, travel in a RoadTrek meandering wherever they wanted. A peaceful, patient man who made my Gramma so very happy. A good life has ended. Blessing to family & friends who feel this great loss.

My deepest condolences to the Gerrish family. May you find comfort in the beautiful words found at Revelation 21:3 & 4, where God promises us that He will soon eliminate all pain, suffering and death. While we wait for this promise to be fulfilled, may the fond memories of Wilbert comfort you and ease your pain.

He was one of the nicest men that I have ever known. He lived a long life and will surely be missed but he is in a better place now. Rest in Peace.
