So sorry to hear of Wilda's passing, I know she fought a long & hard battle. I always enjoyed seeing her & Glen, he was my favorite uncle and the 2 of them were a good match. Love to you boys & your families, she will be missed.

We had a lot of good visits at our cabin on the river at Keosauqua. Wilda and Glen were there visiting a lot. Ben and Kim your boys spent the day hunting frogs down there . They had a good time and had us all laughing. Sorry for your loss.
