I became friends with Wilma thru my mother at Richfield. Mom would talk to her and about me and to me about "her Friend". When I finally did meet Wilma she was already a friend. She would help me stay in touch with what was happening in Salem. She was the most funny, lovely, caring person you would want as your friend. I'm truly sadden by her leaving us. I guess she had to go check on her mom and mine. My prayers are for those left behind.

I remember when Wilma came into the Tencarva family. She was eager to learn and not afraid of anything or anyone. Through the years I sometimes found a reason to call Wilma, just because I knew she would make me laugh. People like me need people like her. I am already missing her greatly yet I know she is bringing a lot of joy into her new home.
