We are so sorry to hear of the passing of Ms Wilma. We lived close to her in Cornelia for a couple of years. She was such a sweet, caring, & loving woman. Ms Wilma loved the Lord & all of you. She was very Godly woman. We thought very highly of her. We are lifting each one of you up in our thoughts & prayers. May God give each one of you the strength, the comfort, & the peace that you will need during this difficult time & the time which follows. Ms Wilma will be greatly missed. Just know that with Jesus in your heart, we will all be able to see her again. God bless....
