    Praying for peace for her family.

  • I would like to send much condolences to all of Wilma’s family. Words cannot begin to describe the woman she was, she was a very bright soul. Wilma will be missed greatly each and everyday. Please find this quote as a ray of light in this time of darkness.

    “Hope is important because it can make the present moment less difficult to bear. If we believe that tomorrow will be better, we can bear a hardship today.”
