I have something of Wilma's that could be discarded of but just would like to give it to one of her Children, Grandchildren, or any close family member that might want to keep it to show her Great, Great., Grands when they are telling stories and sharing memories of Ruth to the Children young or old. Most of us still like to hear and learn about our family member though sometimes it is hard for us. I have found that a little bit of time makes it a touch easier. In the begining you may not be able to have a thought of a loved one you miss without breaking down or trying hard not to. But the first time you can look at a picture and have a hard time containing your joy when the good memories you have pop in your head as you see that face in the picture is a great feeling though you miss them. I think if they were loved by you than they must have been a great person and are at the big Party House in Heaven now. So anyways I have something little that belonged to her. Give me a call at 863-274-5119.

So sorry to hear the lost of Wilma.Wilma and Dick lived across the road from us on St Rd 5 near Cromwell. They were always doing nice things for us and opened their pool to us any time we wanted. If you needed help with anything, Wilma was right there. Heaven has another beautiful angel in their flock. Till we see her again, she will be missed.
