To my Grandpa, a quiet man but I knew he loved me. He was a very hard worker; working two jobs for a long time. He also would teach me how to fix things. He was great at plumbing, and could tell me how to fix plumbing even right to the end. He loved his pine trees. When I was in 4H he bought some trees from me and I helped plant them. He explained how to plant them. It took us all day. Now those trees are about 40 feet tall. He always told me not to give up know matter what. When he became very sick, he never gave up. His strength will always be in my heart. In the last 10 years, he finally started to give hugs and say I LOVE YOU. That was the best gift a grandson could ask for. To that I say 'Thank you, Grandpa'. The week before he left us, I told him that I was grateful for the things he tried to teach me even if I did not listen right away and that I am proud he was my grandpa. I also said Thank you for the memories and I LOVE YOU. You will always be in my heart! GOD BLESS.

Hello Sue and family, Sorry for the loss of your loved one, but I know you are all glad that he is no longer suffering. My great-grandfather went through a lot of the same kind of pain and so did a dear friend of mine. I pray that Don makes friends with them and enjoys his time in the afterlife. God Bless you all and keep you strong in this sorrowful time.

Although I did not know Don Wilz directly, I do know his son Tom. Don and Vivian must have been wonderful parents to have raised such a wonderful son. So at this sad time, I would like to say.... In that still and peaceful place where your spirit goes to mend, May peace and comfort shelter you until you're strong again. My thoughts and prayers are with you Tom, and family. Remember, somehow the sweetest memories will shine through the sadness. May God be with you through this difficult time and always.
