  • Connie and Family, I am so sorry to read about the death of your Mother. She was one of my favorite people to work with at JC Penney’s. We always worked good together. God be with all of you.

  • Dear Connie and Terry,
    I was saddened to hear of the loss of your mother. Your parents were like an aunt and uncle to the Siclair kids. My parents considered your parents their best friends. My mother spoke of Wilma often and has her photo in a keepsake book of photos.

    I have so many wonderful memories of your mother and her laughter. I hope you will find solace in your memories too.

    In sympathy,
    Sherry Siclair
