Not sure what to say?

What I will remember most about Wilma was that she was courageous, painfully honest, and loved to laugh. I learned so much from her - but mostly that nothing in life is insurmountable when confronted with a stubborn refusal to give up. I learned from her how to really see my surroundings by sharing them with her.

I learned from her that we can be angry at God and still be a person of great faith. I learned from her that the miracle we ask for isn't always the miracle we get....

We appreciated her involvement and her teaching Sunday school at Edison Park Community Church. I admired your prairie garden. Please accept our condolences

The AVID Family at ETHS will always remember your love and kindness. Condolences to all her family and friends. Love
Steve Wool
