Aunt Wilma was a wonderful loving aunt. She will be missed. Mother loved to visit with her sisters and loved the cards and letters that Aunt Wilma sent. Clayton, Nancy, Karen and family, so sorry we could not attend the service in person. I did watch it on the virtual Facebook page. Enjoy the service and seeing the pictures.

The last sibling is now joining the family in heaven. What a comfort to know that they are all together rejoicing with the Lord.

Hugs to each of you. I am now retired so one of these days I will hug you in person.

Sincerely, Greg & Alice Kmetz
