Aunt Beryl was open and kind to me since the day I started coming to the Wilson family reunions over 30 years ago. What a great way to experience my husband's (Drayten Young) extended family! I appreciated the prayer shawls and letters. I especially appreciated her company. I hope your many happymemories of Beryl will comfort you in the days ahead.

Dear family of Beryl King, We may never have met, but for a few years, Mrs. King was a good neighbor to me. I was the Director of the Hillel, next door to Beryl. We visited each other as good neighbors do. We shared tea and stories, and she showed me her quilting. I distinctly remember her enjoying the pre-Rosh Hashanah dinner we had invited her to, and hearing her tell me stories that showed just how much she cared about the UD students. I'm very sorry for your loss. Mrs. Beryl King will always be a fond memory for me. Susan Detwiler

Dear Helen and sisters, What a wonderful life your Mother lived. So many memories of the UD Marching Band, to babysitting with you at the house on Park Place(?) She was always there to support the Band and especially your Dad!! I was there when your Dad was laid to rest and I know that it is a blessing that she will now be with him forever. Peace and God Bless your Family, Janet
