    Dolores and Family I was so saddened to read of your great loss. The loss of Steve has been the hardest thing I've ever been through and I'm sure it will be the same for you since we had been with them almost our whole life. Love you all and pray God will bless you with peace and comfort. Please let me know if there is anything I can do.

    My deceased husband, Vic Barrow, told me when I met him he had 3 brothers. One of those brothers was Charles Wilson. Vic loved Charles, Delores, Lisa, Greg, and Bruce like family. When he introduced me to them, they accepted me like family also. When Vic died, Charles stood at the end of his casket and told me I was family and if I needed anything whatsoever to call him and Delores. My heart breaks for Delores and all the family. I've been there. May you all be comforted in knowing he is with our Lord and Savior now

    Craig and I knew Charles from the paper mill years ago. He had a wonderful laugh, and my kids still remember the gigantic pig he had, and his bear who ate popsicles. He will certainly be missed. Love and prayers to all of you from Janis Miears and family.
