We will all miss your still can do spirit and true grit. I know you are watching over us kids now and hopefully you won’t be able to get a good bead on us with that slipper when we mess up.

Wanda and family,

So sorry about the passing of your mother. Only meeting her once, I could tell she was “the glue” that held your family together for many years. What a wonderful family she created along with the many treasured memories you all have to keep close to your hearts today and in the future. I hope that those who crossed over before her were standing there together to greet her with a hot cup of coffee and a smile.

Keeping you and your family in my thoughts and prayers.

What a great sister-in-law she was to me. I know Uncle Joe was there to greet her.

When we lose someone, I believe they still live through us and give us strength to go on. They are forever a special part of us.

May God hold her in the palm of His hand. With much love,
