I am so very sorry for your loss. At this difficult time please remember the Bible's promise at Acts 24:15, "There is going to be a resurrection." May the God of all comfort, comfort you in all your trials. - 2 Corinthians 1:3,4SincerelyAmy Smith jw.org

I am very sorry to see the passing of your loved one. I would like to extend my condolences to family and friends and share a Scripture for comfort. Revelation 21:4 says, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." May you find hope in the faithful promise found at John 5:28, 29 in the Holy Scriptures. Again sorry for your loss.

I am so sorry to hear about this horrific accident. My thoughts & prayers are being sent to the family. Jr., I am so sorry for your loss. I know you have so many memories of times growing up and when grown up. She is in God's hands, couldn't think of a better place to be. RIP Wilma

We send our sympathy and most of all prayers for the Thompson family and Gillenwater family. God is good and even though we might not understand in certain circumstances, we can be assured God makes no mistakes. We must trust Him in all things. We at Siloam Missionary Baptist Church feel we knew her as many prayers went up on her behalf when she was having some health issues. May God comfort and keep you in the palm of His hand. Wanda Lambert and family.

If there is one thing you could say about Wilma she sure did love Truman and Derek. I'm sure the angels will be waiting with open arms and she can be together again with Truman the love of her life.
