My mother and I think that It was unforgettable message by the minister, and all of the scriptures of music in the Bible and how we are all to use our hands for the Lord every day, it was wonderful. Mrs. Wheeler was pretty in pink ,and with all of the pink flowers everywhere and the music, it was a special day to always remember. She was a church pianist for the Lord for fifty years. And, her family will carry on her musical legacy.

Andrew and families, I am so sorry for your loss. I enjoyed working with Ms Judie at the newspaper and she was full of knowledge and a very hard worker. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. I will not be able to go to service, I live in Wilmington now and work at Kure Beach. Rest in Peace Ms Judie
