ADD A MEMORY

Mrs. Stover, was a resident where I worked. Last year I had the privilege of meeting her. During the summer months she was always going out, for dinner or shopping. When she would return I would assist her with items she had purchased. Each time, Mrs. Stover would have a bouquet of flowers and she would say " here take these, you can have them" . If I went to her apt to deliver the newspaper she would always give me candy and or fruit. It got so that I had flowers for the whole summer as my granddaughter would ask who bought you those flowers and why? Then she would have her mom buy me flowers to compete with Mrs. Stover. So, all last summer I had flowers thanks to a beautiful spirited lady and my granddaughter. You will be missed Beautiful!

Wanda was such a dear person. I first met her in the Margaret Hart Circle back in the 1980’s. She was such fun to work with. We renewed our friendship during a cruise to Alaska. Her smile and laughter will be missed.

Memories of my beautiful Aunt Wanda will always be stored in my heart. ( As a very young and naive girl of 18 who just married her nephew Larry)
She was the first woman to take me by the hand and taught me how to make horsdoeuvres.
I was just a young girl off the farm amd i had no idea these even existed.
I know sometimes just the simplest little things we will always cherish.
Will always miss you Aunt Wanda.
