Mitzi and Mike and families,
I just heard today that my Aunt Wilma had passed away. She did live to a good elderly age; however, we never want to let them go, so I realize it is hard for you. She was the last of my aunts and uncles. They are all gone now on both sides of my family. I thought a lot of all of them, so please know I have such sympathy for all of you at this time.
