    Jim and Jadeanne,
    Aunt Wylodean was a delightful woman! She not only was my Aunt, but my friend as well. She was fun to be with. We always shared a lot of laughs when we were together or in our phone conversations across the miles. When we spoke on the phone, she never, ever failed to ask, How is Ken? Always thoughtful of others! We loved her positive attitude and her sharp mind. (She was my source of family history!) She will remain in my heart always. Ken and I loved her very much. Our love, thoughts and prayers to the entire family. May beautiful memories be a comfort to us all.

    Love, Ken and Dianna
