Please accept my sincere condolences. Jeremiah 29:11 assures us God is thinking thoughts of peace toward us; to give us a future and a hope. In the days to come may you find comfort in that hope.

Mrs Eliza thanks for being so nice to me back in the early 70's.
I always had the ultimate respect for you.
My family greatly appreciated you spending the day with us in Chicago during our time of grief when our Grandmother passed.
Cookie and I thought about you often and it was a sad day when we found out about your passing.
May God grant you eternal rest, and your loved ones peace and forever remembrance of you.
Terry,Cookie,and Ora Williams

Mrs Wilder I will forever love her and keep her memory in my heart. So glad I was able to spend time with her Tuesday the week before she transitioned. To her precious daughters and grands I know it is hard but know that Mrs Wilder was the best so keep your hand in Gods unchanging hand.
