  8. Dear Wilma,
    We started at IRS in the same class and never made the connection between us until my son died over 6 years later and we found out that Karen is my niece and Nardy was your son. Such a small world. You were genuinely a very nice person. That’s probably why we became friends. We didn’t see each other much after we respectively left IRS, just a comment on Facebook now and then. I’m praying for the family and can assure them that you have a special place in Heaven. Rest In Heaven

  9. Rest In Peace Mrs. Kidd and I am so glad we lived on Delaware street together as a family and close net community. Love you so much. RIH Kirk Brittain

  10. Dear Auntie,
    I have many memories as a small child with you. (Like the year when you had the broken foot) and we were there. My fondest memory was the week you ,Mom and I spent together in Alabama. I got a chance to see the house where you and Mom used to live, The school you both attended and some of the experiences you two had growing up. Wow! Such a powerful history lesson!
    Thank you for sharing your story with me. Rest In Peace Auntie.

  11. Ms. Wilma. You will truly be missed. We started our journey at the IRS together in October 2002. You were smart, kind and very much a Mother figure to me. I am praying for the family for strength and healing.

  12. To Mr. William Kidd and Family,
    October 2002, I met this kind lady with a warm smile that had perfect diction and a calmness that enveloped everyone in her presence; that wonderful lady was Mrs. Wilma Kidd. I had the pleasure of working with her and the pleasure of her friendship. She invited me to church and invited her way into my heart. We also shared volunteering for the Susan G. Koman breast cancer effort. Ms. Wilma liked nuts, so one year I gathered black walnuts and left a bag on her porch. I gave her some strawberry jelly that I made. I believe she shared that it didn’t quite gel up enough, so she used it as ice cream topping 🙂 When folks got rowdy in our training class, I loved how she said, settle, in the way only she could say it. Every encounter with Ms. Wilma was a treasure and I shall keep them all in my heart forever.
    Thank you for sharing this beautiful soul with us all. Hold all your memories close, they will dry your tears, bring a smile, and keep her alive in you forever.
    Lovingly,
    Vonda S. Tyler
