Dear Mr. Wilt and sons Tom and Brian. My deepest sympathy go out to you all for your loss of your Wife and Mother. Mrs. Wilt left fond memories of her kind hospitality, and preparing snacks after we all played sports at the old vacant lot. Mrs.Wilt was very kind to all of us in the old 36th street neighborhood. What a nice person she was to all. Our deepest condolences go out to your family. Sincerely, Gregg Carney
