It is with sadness and tears that I read about the passing of Rev. Wilson, he was a dear friend to me and always made it a point to take time to write and encourage my ministry in Montana. Though I never met him, he was a generous man and was on staff of the A.M.E. Herald. I always considered him a dear, dear friend.

There are so many on this board that reach out to others to encourage and help. That is the A.M.E. way.

What a tremendous loss to the connection and to Bishop Cousin. Let us keep the Wilson family in prayer and also Bishop Cousin as he consoles the family and congregation.

If anyone has any additional details or bio please send it to the Herald, we want to salute our brother from his staff members.

We will miss you Rev. Wilson, but we will see you again.

It is with sadness that I learn of Reverend Wilsonís death. Having spent many years in the Fourth Episcopal District at Camp Baber, I feel closely connected to it. It was also my good fortune to meet and worship with Reverend Wilson in Toronto at Grant AMEC.

Rev. Wilson was one of the more lively, active spirits in the 4th District, and he will certainly be missed. My husband and I remember the day he was assigned to Toronto, Canada after having pastored in Wisconsin for several years. It was a big change for himself and his family, but he willingly accepted the challenge. My family and I just saw him within the last few months at the Chicago Annual Conference. The Brewster Family sends condolensces to the Wilson Family. Please post funeral arrangements, as my husband and I will make every effort to attend. God bless

On behalf of the Wilson family, I'd like to say thank you all for your heartfelt words and prayers during this time. Gregory's passing took us by surprise. But we rest assured that our Father knows what is best. We find peace in the hope that we'll see Gregory again one day, when death nor sorrow will be no more. We appreciate your continued prayers for the family, especially his wife and kids, his parents, Refonia and Cy, who reside in Florida, and his brother, Lance, who lives in New York. -Anjer Hamilton, Gregory's cousin
