Aunt Wilma was my husband's aunt. She was like his mom and they were very very close. I had the privilege of spending time with her 6 or more times a year for the past 16 years hearing her stories of travels and the family history. It was fascinating! She was a smart business woman, creative, had a sharp sense of humor and loved her family deeply! I'm so grateful I got to know her. She definitely made her mark on me! She always encouraged us to travel " while your still young"she would say. She will live on in our memories and she will be so very much missed. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
