    Very sorry for your loss ,your Ma always had a good heart and I know she will be missed by all ,be thankful for the many wonderful years that you shared with her .


    Phil & Family-
    My name is Joanie Nagatani, when Wilma & Joe lived at Creekside , now Skagit Vakkey Senior Villiage, I would drop of your folk’s mail at their apt. Also I hosted the ” New Resident Social ” in the solarium when your folks lived in the cottage. They were so proud of their golf cart.
    Wilma was such a nice lady. She was always kind to me when I dropped off her mail. Joe would try to shoo me out of the apt. but Wilma always wanted to chat. Wilma always seemed to have a smile on her face . The world lost a wonderful person,
    Sincerely- Joanie Nagatani
