Wanita, you were first my friends (Roberta) Mom, then I got to know you a little at Roller Gardens which became Spirit of America. Our connection continued when I began working at the fabric store with your daughter (Sharol). We attended the same church for awhile. I have missed you since I moved away. Rest in Peace sweet lady.
