Sorry she has left you all. She was a wonderful woman. I will always remember her laugh and her loving personality. Now. She is just waiting in her reward looking for the time when we will be together again. Love you all.

Wilma Joy was an important part of my life while I was growing up. In both my Spiritual Life and Personal life, she was a guiding figure. I can't thank her and Jerry enough. May she rest in the arms of her loving Jesus and celebrate with all those gone before. I will always here her call me Fud.
