Dear Sylvia and Family, My sympathy on the loss of your dear sister Wilma. I recall her smile and eagerness to be at BINGO! at PReHab Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays, 2:30 'sharp.' I enjoyed the time I had with my late sister Linda (White) and the whole gang on those afternoons. After Wilma's studying at D'Youville and her time in France, she must have become fluent. RIP+ Wilma and Linda. Sincerely, Richard Daly (Champlain Park)

When I think about my aunt Wilma, I can't help but to smile. She loved us all unconditionally. She was kind, caring and generous and gave to those in need. Not to mention she was funny too!

We always loved to hear her stories. She was a bit of a fairy godmother of sorts. There is a story about a young man who came to one of her yard sales looking for socks. She disappeared for a moment. Then returned with exactly what he needed. A brand new pair of socks! Which she had absconded from her brother's sock drawer.

She was a pretty good lawyer too. She wrote an entire legally binding contract on the back of a bank deposit slip and had all parties sign it. Even the police that arrived at the accident said, it was the best legal document they had ever seen. Not to mention the smallest.

With so many stories to tell, lets just say that Wilma touched all of our hearts and lives for the better. She not only gave us stories to treasure but she loved listening to the greatest story of all. The story of our LORD and Savior Jesus.

Even though our hearts are heavy with sorrow because we miss her, we have the hope of Heaven through Christ Jesus.

John 3:16 says; "For God so loved the world that He gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." Also Psalm 30:5c, 10-12 says: "...weeping may endure for a night but joy comes in the morning."..."Hear me, O LORD, and have mercy, O LORD be my helper. You have turned my mourning into dancing; You have loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness. That my soul may sing praise to You and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever."

Lets celebrate the life to come. Life in Heaven with the Father, the Son Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Life with our loved ones through Christ.
