Burkhart Family, my deepest sympathy on the passing of Wilma. The one trait that I will al-ways remember about Wilma is she was always smiling no matter where she was. She enjoyed life to its fullest, and made the people around her also smile and have fun. I know all of you have made many memories with Wilma, and those memories are something that no one can take from you. May God bring peace and comfort during these most difficult times. In Christian Love, Pandora
