Wilda was such a beautiful lady, I worked at Carsons in Dekalb and she would come in and always had a smile on her face and say hello, she often said how she wanted to go to coffee with me, we never made that but she was such a joy and I never forgot her I always was so glad to see her when she came to shop, I really loved her and always was so happy to see her she was a very special lady and I will never forget her. She brightened my day
