Cindy Wise, wife of Salvation Army Maj. Philip Wise, is comforted by a woman attending the Sunday church service at the Salvation Army Corps Community Center in North Little Rock. Philip Wise, 40, was shot and killed at the center Christmas Eve.

The wife of the Salvation Army major gunned down on Christmas Eve is being transferred to a new position with the organization in South Carolina.

Philip Wise, who served in the Salvation Army along with his wife for 15 years, was shot and killed at the Salvation Army Corps and Community Center in North Little Rock on Christmas Eve. His three children were with him.

Cindy Wise, who was alone inside the center at 1505 W. 18th Street when her husband was shot, called the police. Officers found him lying in the building’s back doorway.

"I could never have anticipated how much my life would change during my three-year appointment in North Little Rock," Cindy Wise told the Salvation Army. "From the blessing of being able to adopt my three beautiful children to the tragic loss of my husband, North Little Rock holds many memories for me. I have made many close friends here, and my children will always consider Arkansas their home."

Wise was originally from Weirton, W.Va., and Cindy, was from Charleston, W.Va. They met 16 years ago at a Salvation Army school in Atlanta. Both had worked for the Salvation Army ever since.

The Salvation Army of central Arkansas will hold a farewell service this weekend to pay tribute to honor Cindy Wise.

We hate to see her leave. But we wish her and the kids the best. We also wish the killer could be teamed up with the brute who killed the lady in the church and sent to be room mates with Van Der Sloot in the Peruvian prison. Those three and a local crew would get along well in one room with little food, no TV and little else.
