It's been quite a while since we had our last conversation, just the day before you moved on. I must say you were always jut you. I pass by your house nearly every day, and often think about our talks. I really enjoyed just stopping by and shooting the bull. I want everyone to know how much you have been there for so many people. The humbleness you exhibited while working with people was inspirational to me and a characteristic I will try to pass along. I truly believe when we pin on the "shield" we have to wear it with pride, but hide it behind service to those who we protect from the wolf. I saw that in you. I will try to make sure to set that example that you set for me. I will always call you friend. It was a great blessing to have had the chance to know you as family. Blessings to those you left behind and we will continue the watch.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.
God Bless

You were a firecracker, and always stood up for what you believed in. You always stood up for those of us who couldn't stand up for ourselves!! I miss you Uncle Wilbur, very much. I came across a picture last night, one where you were holding Caitlin in one arm and Shianne in your other arm. They were only 2 and 1, and they were both still so tiny! They both had their little heads laying on your shoulders, and you had the biggest smile on your face! I wish you were still here, so that you could see how beautiful your four nieces are today, and so that my girls could know you. But I know that you do see how beautiful all four of them are, because you are watching them grow up from Heaven above, and I know one day we will meet again, and then my girls will be able to get to know their amazing, brave, and protective Uncle Wilbur!!! Thank you for all you did for me, and how you were always there for me and my girls when I was going through my divorce. I miss you, and I love you Uncle Wilbur!!

I need you today to help me get over some very much pain that I am in. I know you are watching over all of us so you know what it is all about.

I remember Wilbur from when I was a P.O. in Statesboro. He was always upbeat and loved by all. He gave me good advice as I began my criminal justice career to treat people the way that you would want to be treated if our roles were reversed. God Bless you my friend!

Tomorrow will be 10 years since you were taken away from all that loved you. I've wondered through the years how things may have been if you could have stayed. I'll never forget you. With love always.

I remember Wilbur from my young rookie days as a probation officer in Statesboro. Wilbur was a great man and I never heard him say a bad thing about anyone. In my early years before becoming certified as a peace officer as well as a probation officer Wilbur, as well as many other Bulloch Co. deputy friends allowed me to ride along with them on their shifts. He was to me a kind man who genuinely cared about all people that he encountered. May God Bless You and Your Family.

Well here it is another year, this makes the 9th year. It is so hard for me this time of year. Daddy I miss you so much and there are so many things that I need to know that only you could tell me. Well let me tell you, you have another greatgrand baby its another boy and his name is James Braiden Crosby, We call him Braiden (and the Chunkster) is he chunky. But so precious, he and Landon both. I get them as much as I can because I've learned from loosing you that you never know what tomorrow brings. Well I guess I will go for now, But my last words will be like always I love you Daddy.

I talked with your little girl. I think she's happy. You have some beautiful great grandbabies. May 19, I hate this day! I didn't get to tell you good bye. I thought as the years went by, it would get easier to face this day. It doesn't, not for me. It gets worse. I just hope somehow, some way, you know, you are still loved. You're in my heart, always.

Very Special Friend

Well it's that time of year again that you loved. You enjoyed getting out and deep frying a turkey, and we enjoyed you ccoking it because it was good. Which it didn't matter what you cooked it was always good. I wish every year that you was here to enjoy this time together. We miss you so much, Johnny and I was talking last night about how you would enjoy Landon (Mitch's) baby. He is such a mess. We enjoy him so much. Well I will go for now but remember I love you and miss you so much.

I met Wilbur in the mid 70's. The last time I saw him was in the summer of 2000. I was totally devastated when I saw the news of his passing. He was 1 of the finest men anyone could ever meet. I, along with many others miss him to this very day. When I think of him, I still shed tears. Wilbur, if there's any way you could know all this, just know, you were and are loved by many and always will be.
