    To the Burgoyne Family;
    Wilma was such great fun when we were in choir together. I will miss her sunny attitude. We’re sorry we won’t be able to share time and memories with you on Friday as we must travel to Lethbridge for an Interment for a 92 year old lady we looked after whose Memorial Service is on Thursday this week. Our hearts are with you at this time.

    Very sad to hear that Auntie Wilma, the last of the 10 Kromms has now passed on. She was always good to me and I have wonderful memories of Uncle Ross and Auntie from when we were kids visiting them from Victoria with our Dad Walter and mom Pearl right up to a few years ago when she took me to try out the milkshake at a newly opened McDonalds! I will miss her.

    I am so sad to hear that Auntie Wilma has recently passed on especially as she is the last Kromm of the 10. She was always good to me and I enjoyed visiting her and Uncle Ross and staying with them. I have lots of lovely memories visiting Uncle Ross and Auntie Wilma from when I was little with my father Walter and mom Pearl right up to a few years ago when Auntie took me to try out the milkshakes at a new McDonalds which opened recently nearby. I am glad that I was able to know them both. I hope you all get comfort from the service to celebrate Auntie’s life.

    We’re very sorry for the loss of your Mom. She looked good the last time I saw her shopping with Donna. But she sure missed your Dad. Whenever I talked to her at your house, she spoke about him. Together again.

    Please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of Auntie Wilma. She was the wonderful loving wife of my mother Vera youngest brother Ross. I have many fond memories of our family yearly vacation to Calgary to visit Uncle Ross Auntie Wilma and their children (my cousins) or them coming to Vancouver Island to visit us.
    Auntie Wilma had a zest for life. She saw the best in everything. She had a sense of fashion and always had a beautiful suntan and a big smile.
    Auntie Wilma will be dearly missed…but there’s a big celebration in heaven!
