To the families and loved of Mrs Ulrich, who we know will be dearly. It's in these times that we all are in great need of comfort. And almighty God has promised at revelation 21:4 that he will wipe away all our tears. And he will do away with death, pain, and sorrow. So, you can draw close to God in prayer. And he will help sustain and support your families to endure in these difficult times and months to follow. My deepest condolences to all of your loved ones.

Wanda was a woman of great integrity ❤ A very rare gem. She was a natural leader who had high expectations of not only herself, but those under her leadership. She expected the best out of people and led by example! Honest to a fault, you could come to her with any problem and she would stay right beside you to help solve it. She knew what true friendship is, and how to keep confidences. She would also tell you when you were wrong and not mince words lol! She was an intensely private person, but once you really got to know her, she showed you a witty, sarcastic, and fun side to her. Oh, her laugh!! I always loved to make her laugh. Her honesty & moral compass were unwavering, a trait that is hard to find in a person, but Wanda possessed it in spades. If she cared about you, she'd fight for you to the ends of the earth. She poured her love and affection into her precious dogs & family. An honest-to-goodness beautiful soul in every way.
I miss you & love you, Wanda. I'm so very thankful for the time we shared.....
