Wanda was a loving and caring "big sister", my only sister. We lived miles apart, but visited by phone often over the years. I will treasure the memories of last May and the many hours we spent sharing memories of our childhood and of our Mom and Dad. Rejoice, Wanda, with all our loved ones in heaven with you today!! Love you, Bryan!!
