Wendell G., 84, Erie, PA

Wendell Gilbert, 84, a resident of Brevillier Village in Erie, Pennsylvania,  had his wish to return to his hometown of Oil City and visit his parents’ grave granted, thanks to the Erie chapter of Twilight Wish Foundation.  Gilbert has been a resident of Brevillier Village for the past 11 years and has always been an advocate for other residents.  He grew up in Oil City and, although he never finished school because of his disability, enjoyed fixing things for his neighbors.  When Gilbert was still in Oil City, he often visited his parents’ graves and made sure they were well-maintained. His wish to visit their gravesite at Sunset Memorial Gardens was granted on Friday, October 25, 2013.  As part of his wish, Gilbert  also visited with family and enjoyed lunch in Oil City.
