Dr. Wilkes and Gayle, I'm so sorry for your loss. I'll miss Kevin's smiling face coming into the office. I wish there were words that would make it all better. If I knew what they were I'd share them with you to take away your sadness and pain. You've both in my thoughts. Gail

Jim and Gayle I was saddened to learn of the death of Kevin. I pray that he is with his savior in heaven. May our savior also comfort you as you grieve the loss of your son. George
Dear Gayle and Jim, We are heavy hearted for your loss. All the love and prayers for your family. May your memories remain in your hearts and bring you comfort. Grief is not the absence of love but instead, grief is the presence that love is still there. Tami and Jim Bolte and family
Dr. Wilkes, you were my pediatrician through the 80’s and into the 90’s. I happened upon this today. I wanted to give my deepest condolences to you and your family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Dr. Wilkes, you were the pediatrician for our children, Gunner and Lucy, and were instrumental in guiding us as we raised them. In the process, you became very dear to us. Although we moved away and haven't seen you since a wedding several years ago, our hearts are just sick over Kevin's passing. Please know that you have been in our prayers since we heard the news. May God hold you all in his hands. Linda and Rick laCour
