I had the pleasure of being Wanda’s caregiver throughout the last year of her life, and have known she and her family for years. She lit up any room she walked into, loved her Lord more than anything, and had the best personality. Although she is missed, we are thankful she is rejoicing with her Lord with her mind, memory, and body back. It was an honor to know this precious woman. I love you always, Mim! ❤️
