School Memories

December 11, 2012

I remember Wilma from school.  I thought she was the prettiest of all.  We were born the same year, l
1942, but I came two months prior to her birth.  I was shocked to find out that she had left us.  She was such a gem.  She never lost her beauty and I am looking forward to seeing her in heaven.  The reason for this photo, she was a tiger of a lady.

Thanks for the opportunity to send this note.
