Wilbur loved family, friends, festivals, food, fun, and French: not necessarily in that order. The family would like to give special thanks to everyone who helped Wilbur with his art and schooling; you were many and you will always be loved. Let's remember Wilbur was a friend to all, slow to judge, and appreciative of the life he was given to live. He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.
