Mr. Wilson was a very sweet and kind man who I had the pleasure of being around since his admission to Chesapeake Health and Rehabiliation Center.
He loved the musical performances that took place at the center and would be found moving his hands to the beat of the music each and every time. He always had a smile on his face and provided his regular greeting of, “hey suga” whenever I would see him.
He will be missed and his memory lives on in the hearts of those that had the pleasure of taking care of him.
