St. John's Presbyterian Church celebrated Reverend Victor Wilson's twenty years with us today—and said goodbye to a family it is impossible not to love as Victor gave his final sermon. Morning and evening were Victor's themes. The responsibility we all have to carry memory forward, not as a burden, but as a gift. The Wilsons will live among mountains now, birds, open air, artists, dulcimer songs. They will visit with their beautiful girls, walk Carolyn's children to school, bless Katherine's upcoming wedding to Sean.
Will you grow old with me? Victor asked Jane, his fabulous red-headed wife, at his sermon's close.
And I thought to myself that that is perhaps the most romantic question a man can ask a wife.
Health and happiness, Victor and Jane.
