Wylene was a great friend and will be truly missed by all who knew her. While she was here on earth, she brought joy and love into the lives of many; and now the angels in Heaven are rejoicing because she has brought that same joy and love to share with them throughout eternity.
May the peace of the eternal God be with the family in this time of sadness.
