Aunt Wilma is the last of the Guy and Madeline Moore girls. It’s always hard to have a family member go but as Uncle Joe once told me——your last breath here on earth , your first breath in Heaven.

That’s a pretty powerful, positive thought isn’t it.

Rest In Peace Aunt Wilma.
Sister Mary’s son Bob Murray.
