    Dear Joan & family,
    I was saddened to read that Daisy passed away. Sorry I can’t attend the service on Sat. but I wanted you to know how special Daisy was to me. In my years at Southwood United she was always a joy; including bringing us the Golden Show. She was so proud to show us her gifts of song and dance. She helped in many ways freely and with joy of her service to God’s work.
    It seems just a few months since I met you both at the Rocky. May she be at peace. My condolences to you all. The grandchildren will certainly miss her; she loved them so much.

    Blessings, Wilma
