Oh, Wilma, I feel you were so much more than the obituary says. You were a great cousin, keeper of the family's memories; great story teller. You knew things about what our families did that we, as younger cousins, didn't know or realize. The nieces and nephews gained knowledge of all our lives and yours.
God speed until we come together again.

Only knew you a short time but so enjoyed your "tell it like it is" attitude. You were a wonderful breath of fresh air! Bless your loved ones and bless you.

Oh Aunt Wilma I do miss you so much, but so glad you are not in pain anymore. So enjoyed getting to know you the last 10 years or so. I loved visiting with you about old, current and future plans. You were a great sister mother and Aunt. My kids loved to come visit between swims and I loved our lunch dates. My house is filled with memories of you from our small butter cups for shrimp, to our big serving spoons, cork screw remover and best of all our dish towels with your handy stitches on them. We miss you Wilma hope you and all your family in Heaven are having a blast!
