Memories Timeline


  1. Oh Wilma, what a beautiful and happy life you seemed to have lived. Sam & I have been so blessed to have known you all these years. I remember losing touch with you for years while raising our boys and then one day you walked into the Christopher Columbus Spaghetti dinner with your lady friends. I walked up to you thinking you wouldn’t remember me and by gosh you did. How could I ever forget you and Sammy. You made Sam’s day when he saw you there.
    You will be missed and loved forever Wilma.

  2. Chad, my sincere condolences to you and your family on the passing of your mom. Heaven received another angel. May she RIP.

  3. Our sincere condolences Chad, to you your family. Let me know if there is anything we can do for you.
