|Let the memory of Wilbur (Bill) be with us forever|
"A TRIBUTE OF LOVE AND REMEMBRANCE"
Today, January 28, 2014, we are remembering and honouring a beloved father, grandfather, great-grandfather and great-great grandfather. It has been a year ago today since Dad left us. I treasure the memory of being with him the moment he died, and went on to receive the greatest gift of all, to enter into the presence of our Lord Jesus.
With Dad as our exemplary role model, we all learned about Christian unconditional love, kindness, generosity, patience, good humour, tenacity and self control. We thank Dad for these gifts and the legacy of love he left with us. He is with us still. He was a good steward of his God-given talents. His love with us is now everlasting.
We miss his loving face, the sound of his voice, his kind and gentle ways, his unselfish heart. We miss how he made our family complete. We love him and miss him so.
Little by little, we begin to remember not just that Dad died, but that he lived, and that his life gave us memories too beautiful to forget.
When we cease to think of Dad will be when God has called us too.
Dad is always remembered, dearly missed, eternally loved and in our hearts forever,
Kandy and Tom, Chad, Barbi, Matthew and Danica and Ryan, Jess, Noah, Grace and Luke"

"As Administrator of Stafford Healthcare it was my honor to have Mr. Wengren at our facility. Thank you for sharing this amazing tribute to Mr. Wengren, it is a reminder to all of us, that each resident had an entire life filled with family, work, friends, accomplishments, triumphs and independence before coming to us. Mr. Wengren touched many lives including ours."
"You will surely be missed Grandpa, you were an inspiration to all who had the privilege to know you. I am so glad I was able to visit with you one last time! The girls, Larry and I wish you nothing but the best in heaven where I know you are reunited with Grandma. I was truly a lucky girl to have you in my life! I will love you always."
"We always knew of Cousin Wilbur, but never had much contact with him until later years. We met up with him, on his cross country van trips after his wife died. We always remember him playing some instrament on our front porch while visiting us. Heaven will be lucky to have him now. They will have something for him to play I am sure. Love, Ellen and Casey"

My grandfather passed away today near the same time as I found out we were having a baby boy. My Grandfather was my hero as a boy and always made sure my brother and I had fun. It seems like almost every summer was spent at my grandparents at least 3 days a week. Thankfully I was able to introduce him to my family via Skype 2 days ago to meet the little boy and the woman that has s"
The courage and strength that you had throughout the years, inspired us all. You gave us unconditional love and always had a smile on your face.

Love you forever Grandpa."

"We'll miss the music at Christmas! Every year we would all get together for dinner and grandpa would bring his little piano and sheet music so we could sing Christmas carols. It was just a nice old fashioned tradition :0).

"wonderful grandfather to my sons, and loving dad to my wife, his baby girl. glad to have known him for so long."
"Otto Mattner was Wilbur's Uncle. His mother and my dad were brother and sister. They had three other brothers and sisters. They were Elsey Fredricksen, Fred Mattner, and Ida Borkowski. Wilbur is Ellen Sagan's first cousin, as she is the daughter of Otto Mattner. Casey is Ellen Mattner Sagan's husband. Hope that explains our connection to Wilbur. He will be in our hearts forever."
Have a suggestion for us?
