    Dear Ones,
    We are saddened to learn of the passing of Wilma. A true woman of excellence, I am certain there was much celebration when Wilma entered the gates of Heaven, where her dear “Lulu” or as he was known in the family “Bull” was waiting standing straight and tall, arms open. We apologize for not being with you during this time, but one of our own is in St Thomas also and we continue to be at his bedside. Please know our thoughts and our prayers are with you all now and in the coming days.
    Sending our love,
    Bob & Cindy Dunivan
