Mickey, Renea and Billie,

God Bless and be with you in a special way during this difficult time. I had not seen Wilma for several years. But the beautiful picture drew a flood of good memories of the 1970s when we were running around, in and out at all hours and pretty much disrupting an otherwise quiet neighborhood. Wilma always had a big bright smile for all of us. It’s really hard to let go and send her on her way to our Lord. But, I’m certain He will take good care of her. Love and God you all.

My prayers are with the Debold family at this time. Glen Dale wouldn’t have been the same without DeBolds’s Grocery. And Joe, if I read this correctly you lost Michele? I am sorry to hear this as well.
