Guestbook

  1. My condolences to the family. I worked with Mr Wilson’s for a few years at Cameron Construction. I always enjoyed our conversation to and from work. I will always remember him for his pint of half & half with strawberry Twinkie all mixed together for lunch. Him and I built my complete roping pen in Cameron. All metal and cables. He was a awesome welder and a greater man.
