Ray, Kelly and Tony, I worked with Wilma at OSC. I will always remember her smile and the way she made me laugh. She was so funny. I have missed her so much since she retired, but I am a better person for having known her. She is not far away - she lives on in our hearts and memories. God bless you all...

I had the priviledge of working with Wilma at the Controllers Office in Butner before she moved to OSC and came to know her very well. She as a good, Christian, family woman who worked hard at no matter what she undertook. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and those who were close to Wilma, she will be missed.

Ray, Tony & Kelly I am so sorry for your loss. Wilma was a wonderful person, and a great friend. I worked with her for several years at the Controller's Office. We even took a bus trip to Newport News for the "The Parade of Sails". I am so glad I had Wilma's friendship and the privilege of calling her my friend. God Bless and keep you.
