  4. To the family of Ms. Wilma Chism. We are so sorry for your loss. Ms. Wilma was a person that had such a good and very pleasant attitude about GOD and life. She was always the same sweet woman whenever she came across our paths. My mother and I will truly miss seeing her, hearing her pleasant voice and the good advice that she always gave to us on being kind to people so that we can get your rewards in Heaven. She is with GOD and she has a halo and her wings now. If there is ever anything that I (Teresa Cook-Haynes) or my mother (Maxine Cook) can do to help out in anyway; please feel free to give us a call day or night. We will have you all in our prayers.Love you all, The Haynes-Cook Family.

  5. To Jada and Family you have my deepest sympathy in the lost of your Mother. She was one of sweetest Persons i have ever been around.I wish you peace and strength in the days to come. God bless you and keep you

  6. I would like to express my sympathy to the family, particularly to my classmate Appezine. Wilma (Tutu) and my sister Clemmie were best friends back in the days of Rhoads High School. I remember her coming to our house many times and staying for band rehearsal or football games. Losing our loved ones is never easy, but as surely as we live, we also die. The only thing that sustains us is our faith in God and His promises. Look to Him for strength and stand on His Word. Be not dismayed because God will take care of you.
