    I grew up knowing the Cameron family in the Congo, where my parents and Howard and Wilma Cameron were Presbyterian missionaries. “Aunt” Wilma and her family were always like family to us. Her funeral service yesterday was a loving tribute to a special lady. Her gift of hospitality was a theme in all the words spoken about her during and after the service, and I was a recipient of her hospitality many times over the years, in Congo and in several of their homes in the States. I am grateful to have known her, She will be greatly missed.

    I was a member of Ingleside Presbyterian Church in Scotdale,Ga when Howard was Pastor and Wilma ,Jonathan,Grace and Elizabeth were at Inglside! What a blessing Wilma Cameron was! Her sweet gentle loving spirit and the smile of an angel! She was such an inspiration and was kind and loving to everyone! I am so blessed that I was able to call her friend and be a brief part of her spiritual journey! Love hugs and God’s blessings surround the family . Pat
