Oh I'm so sad to see that Wilma passed away. I was so close to her through the late 70's into the late 80's. I loved her dearly. I did some research to find out what her new married name was and found her....but sadly I procrastinated on making contact. Came across my note to myself with her new name yesterday and decided to try to look her up once again.
I'm sure you all knew that she had a heart of gold. I will never forget her. Always had on her heals and ready to dance. And could she make a pie! She taught me how to make her fantastic crust. Im so glad her path crossed mine....at least for awhile.
I hope your dancing up a storm in heaven my dear friend. God knows your heart....so did I.
