Sherry and girls, I am so sorry for your loss! Haven't been able to connect with "Wils" for awhile (phone# inactive) today did a facebook search and saw that Jim had passed. I'm shocked and very saddened and send my deepest sympathies. One of my bestest friends in college we shared many good memories!

We were so sorry to about Mr Wilson. Our girls were in Blackhawk at that time when he taught and coached. When we hear of the lose of a loved one we always try to remember the hope the Bible offers. In Acts 24:15 it says "There is going to be a resurrection". What a wonderful hope to look forward to.

Jim coached me in football and was a teacher of mine at Blackhawk High School. He was a great coach and we always made fun of him for having his girls run his coat over to practice. He always laughed at the skits of him and his big calfs. He would walk on his toes during practice twirling his whistle around his index finger while cracking jokes and instructing his player. I have coached for for 21 years and Jim was a big inspiration to me. He was my coach and my teacher but more importantly he was my friend. I love you Jim and I will see you in heaven.
