    I am so sorry to hear of the death of my cousin Wilsa. My maiden name is Otto and her wonderful father Jim was my father Jack’s oldest brother. I have not seen Wilsa since we were children but I have been in touch with her recently through Facebook. My thoughts are with her family tonight. Much love, Linda Senese (Otto)

    Dear, dear Ron, I hold you and the family in my prayers as you walk this difficult part of your journey. I loved Willie's humor, her spunk, and that tender heart she sometimes tried to hide. She will be missed. Sending you my love, and hugs. Denny

    It was a privilege to be treated as one of the family by Wilsa. My favorite memory is when I walked in about 8 months pregnant and she said, "That is the most pregnant butt I have ever seen." Such a representation of the fun around her.

    My sincere condolences to the Ashby Family for the loss of your dear love Wilsa Mae. May your family find comfort in the the wonderful hope our loving Father, Jehovah has promised us through his Word, the Bible of life without suffering, pain, sickness, or death found at Isaiah 25:8 and Acts 24:15.
