Extending our love and condolences from the Brown family. The Lewis family are all so very special to us! Undoubtedly our neighborhood yielded some amazing people because of the examples we had in folks like Wanda and Larry. So So many fond memories and special relationships! If we get up the nerve to have another garage sale, we will do it in honor of Wanda. ;) We love you all and will be lifting you up in prayer for peace and comfort.

Our love always,
