To Wilma’s family:
I was going to come on Saturday with Wayne Hird , was signed up but became ill so couldn’t. I did watch the Service on the website today and what a beautiful tribute to. Wilma. I knew her through Marie Fishback Hird and first met her when I lived on Leinsnter street and she was in the apartments behind me.Then I got to know her better through Marie and all the Fishback reunions. She was a wonderful lady! always had a big smile on her face and she lived her faith for sure. I know she will be missed by many but yet someday those of us who know Christ as our personal Saviour will see her again. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time
