    Jackie and Jolene, I am sadden for the loss of your mother. She had called me about 4 days before she got sick.
    She was such an encouragement to me especially since the loss of CJ. She was so much fun to visit with and always had funny stories about Lynn and I when we were little. I loved your mother and she will be missed.

    Jackie and Jolene
    With so little that we can do these days I try to occupy my time by looking up people that I have known. I was so sad to find that your mother just recently passed away. Your mother was a wonderful lady and always had a smile that would cheer any people up. My thoughts and prayers for you.

    Dear Wilson family,
    I’m so sorry, I am just seeing Lee’s obituary this minute. I am so saddened. I loved Lee – she was the kindest, sweetest, most genuine person! her smile was magical! I have had the privilege of knowing Lee since my oldest daughter entered first grade – so 1987. I had the true blessing of re-connecting with Lee when she joined my Senior Strength Training classes – maybe 15 years ago? I will always hold a special place for her in my heart. I am so sorry for your loss. May your many wonderful memories hold you up and bring you peace. With my love, Vicki
