Wilma and I have been working on our trees together on Ancestry for years. We shared so much info and loved how our families fit together.

My mom, Wilma Barnes was born in 1929, they were cousins many times removed.

I will be ever be thankful for her help and guidance, but much more for the friendship we had over the years.

She will be missed.

Sending blessings,

Faye Mayo
