I wish to express my deepest sympathies to Brian and his family at the passing of his mother. I so enjoyed talking with Wilda when she came into the office. The twinkle in her eyes was so cheerful and somewhat impish in a sweet way. I truly believe she had an inner joy that she loved to share with those around her. Terri Schneider (Beltone)
