I will miss my “roomie” Wanda. Our children married years ago and we “moms” got to travel with them on a fun outing becoming fast friends corresponding the old fashioned way; writing each other. Wanda was a devoted mom, grand & great grand mom who kept busy in retirement and had the greatest wit and laughter. We’d catch up on our family doings via holiday cards. Those lively reports will be sorely missed. Enjoy heaven “roomie” . xo
