Wilma was such a gentle soul. Heaven has gained and earth has lost but it was good for us while she was here.

I know this very wise lady who once said to me, Leslie, God will never give you more than you can handle. When you start to feel like giving up remember to tell yourself " God will never give me more then I can handle". Then just take a deep breathe, you will see that it does help in very big ways. Being the teenager I was and troubled at times who know I'd latch on to that conversation, because little did I know that I was going to take this and make it my go to when times got rough on me I would get rough with time. I'd stop everything close my eye take a deep breath in and out and directly following in my head id hear now Leslie, god will never give you more than you can handle. Pulling me through once again another not so easy moment in my life. This wise woman to whom i speak about is a remarkable lady. She has the best advice to funniest story and the unfortunately the scariest eyes when made and being I'm Leslie bell we all know i was a "angel" i never made that woman made. This lady though is Wilma Bruns a sister a daughter wife mother grandmother and she was fortunate the be a great grandmother to not just one but two great granddaughters. The other night my cousins mike and Gina my boyfriend Douglas and my self were all sitting next to my grandmother and i recalled her always telling every one " when i die DONT stand around me sobbing or just staring at me" so quickly i wipe my tears, and I ask mike about the elephant my grand father tried on after he was put in remission of prostate cancer and mike smile shook his head and said oh yes and we have the picture to prove it sorry doug lol then we spoke of the meanest cat named buffy you'd ever meet in ur life but ill be if this saint cat wouldn't go over to grandmas wheelchair and point her tail straight in the air and not only allow but wait for grandma to pick her up and place her in my grandmas lap. Wow i could sit here for hour thinking of the good and bad and everything in between but the only thing that matters is my grandma is no longer in pain and her heart is no longer broken because now she gets to spend the rest of eternity with her husband my papaw Bob Bruns I miss you guys so much till we see each other again i love you both time infinity to the infinity power. I will take all the words of wisdom and kindness and lectures and spread them one by one each and every day till the day i shall see you both again i will make sure u continue to touch peoples lives for ever.

Love always and forever
Your youngest granddaughter,
