My Condolences to my cousins, second cousins and other family members on the passing of my Great Aunt Wilda. I have fond memories of our visits to Louisa both as a child and an adult. Grammy Maude Williams and I visited several times when I still lived in Virginia. She will be missed. May God Bless you all…. Love, Beverly and Don
When I met Wilda she was always cooking cookies in which my children inhaled. She loved to cook and chat with the boys. The boys enjoyed the time that they spent with her. As did I. She was very head strong and set in her ways on things, but you had to love her. God, bless her soul. I`m sending out prayers to the entire family. Especailly Jeffrey, his grandmother meant the world to him. I wish there was something I could do to help the pain he is feeling but there isn`t. I would love to make all of this better for the entire family but there isn`t a band aide big enough to make the hurt go away. It is heartwrenching to know that the entire family is suffering. If there is anything you need please dont hasitate to ask for anything. Sending lots of love and prayers.Kristie, Travis and Kaleb
