    I met Wilma when I was hired at BMC on 6-1-70. She was Dr. Oswalt's right hand person and I was privileged to know both of them. Although I worked on the hospital side in nursing administration, I interacted with all of the doctor's offices. May the family find comfort in knowing all of the lives Wilma touched. We all have warm memories of her.
