Past Master Eric Wilson

2011 to 2102 Eric Wilson CBEOn Monday 11th November  I attended the funeral of Past Master Eric Wilson at Lillington Church near Leamington Spa, along with at least 20 other Woolmen, and a large congregation.

It was a sad occasion, but dignified, and his son Charles and granddaughter Eleanor gave tributes to him.  Charles read out a personal message of condolences from the Prince of Wales; another granddaughter Cordelia read a lesson.  We had lunch afterwards in the Marley Court Hotel where we had the opportunity to meet and speak to other members of his family.
