Wanda was such a generous soul. She opened up her house, letting Katie and Bill bring our family to come and stay for a few days. It was our first trip to the ocean. I still remember Maggie, not knowing Bill’s dad’s name and saying to Wanda, “You know, that man you married?” That line has been repeated many times.
