My brother, Frank Wilson, was a wonderful support to me while I was growing up and I will miss him the rest of my life.

He truly was someone to be looked up to, though he was the most humble person I have ever met. He deeply cared about and was dedicated to his family, his country, his community and his fishing.

His valiant fight against cancer was lost four years ago this coming August, but the lessons he taught us all on facing adversity and living your life with love, joy and respect will continue to be a blessing to us.

We will always love and miss you, Frank.
