    Wilbur

    Elmer Harris has just informed me, that his dad Wilbur Harris, and my dearest friend has passed. I will miss him greatly. Never a better friend. To me this is like losing my own dad. No details as of yet. Prayers for Elmer and family, The benchrest community has lost so much by his passing..

    Wilbur and I were no kin , but closest of friends. He always gave tremendously to the BR community, and treated me like I was part of the family

    Wilbur is in my Hall Of Fame and belongs in the bench rest Hall Of Fame. Wilbur was our leader and our father.

    Sad news indeed - on any bench-rest icons "short list", Wilbur was tops. Condolences and prayers for Elmer.

    I too am very deeply hurt of this news. I conversed with Wilbur through the messaging system in here. I gained a great friend because of it. Rest in peace my great friend.

    I don't know as of yet, Jerry, probably not much. Giving Elmer time to absorb,, he will contact me as soon as he does. Just say a prayer for Elmer and the rest of the family.
