    BJ and children we were so sorry to hear of your beloved Juanita passing. We know your heart is heavy at this time. She was a beautiful woman one could only try to live up to. I will remember her smile she tought me in Bible class many times and I learned many good lessons from her. We love you all and are praying for you all. Love Ed and Angela Myers and children

    We may be separated by miles but our hearts will never be separated. Sweet memories of this special ball of friendliness will live on…still a girl at heart – married to “Billy J.” whose favorite phrase is, “I’ve never had it so good.” It’s sad for us now, B.J. but when you can join her, both of you can say, “I’ve never had it so good.” Love and prayers for all the family.

    May the God of all comfort (1 Corinthians 1:3) be with you during this time of deep sorrow, ‘While you throw all your anxiety upon him, because he cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7. Sincere condolences for your loss.

    My heart is truly aching for the loss of my wonderful friend. I will always cherish the memory of her laughter, and love. What an amazing gift from God she was to all of us! BJ you are in my thoughts and prayers.

    I just heard this news and I want to tell you, BJ and all you lovely Wilsons, that today as I remember Juanita I find myself in awe of a beautiful life well and deeply lived. I can’t think of another person I’ve ever met who embraced life and her own gifts with more passion and grace. She left nothing untried, undone, unsavored. And somehow, in the midst of all that living, she always made time for those who needed her, including, I know very well, my family. Juanita’s wedding gift to me was a hand-made dress and I will never forget the love and attention she put into it. Many, many warm wishes to BJ and family coming from frosty Maine, where I am revisiting today loving memories of the sweet, funny, generous lady I was so privileged to know. All best love to you. Claire

    We are truly blessed to have known Juanita. She brought joy every where she went. Her love and concern for us and for others always was so sincere and true. I will miss her calls updating us and checking on us. She always made me know she loved my family and thought of us. BJ , our love to you as you go through this time but I know you are comforted knowing she is with our Lord.
    Love to you and your family

    We are sorrowing for your loss. This precious Priscilla with which you were paired has had its effect. Everyone knows of your faith and hospitality. The goodness you both generated because your love of God has lent its stability of righteousness to us. God has been glorified. So, we thank God for you both. And now at this time, especially for Juanita.

    Oh, what a precious woman! I met her at singing school in Wilburton, OK in 1988 & have loved and enjoyed her for many years. She blessed and enriched the lives of all who knew her. B.J., my heart grieves for your tremendous loss. May God be with you in the days and months ahead and may he keep you in his care until your life in this tent is ended and you can both be forever with the Lord. I am so thankful to have known both of you. Not many people make such an impression on our lives, but Juanita certainly did. My love and prayers for you and the family, B.J.

    Juanita was such an encouragement to me. I stayed in their home while in a meeting at West End in 2001. A wonderful week of memories! I saw them several times since and always enjoyed those times. My life is better because of the association with these Christians. B.J. and Juanita are the real deal when it comes to faith. What a blessing she was!

    Our hearts are sadden by the passing of Sister Wilson. We have fond memories of her. She was a very kind lady and always had a smile and a hug for you. I believe that she is resting in a good place from her labors. We extend our deepest affections to BJ and the family. May God be with you through this hard time and give you comfort and strength.

    In Christian Love
