  1. Dear Wendy, Kim and the entire Ilett family,
    Deepest condolences over mom’s loss. I fondly remember mom as such a caring, loving and endearing lady who always remained mindful (through dad’s tutelage) of fiscal savviness. No more pain for mom and she has rejoined dad now. Hope and healing for all as we dig into the treasure chest of memories of a truly lovely and special lady.
