I knew Wanda through Eastern Star. She always had a hug or a sweet kind word for me. She inspired me to be better in all things. I loved and will miss her always.

Again one of those Dorchester kids that picked the figs and turned the snow to slush first thing and laughed and played because you always made us welcome in your home that’s just the kind of momma you were and you were so loved for it. Much love ❤️ and prayers to Debbie, Terry. And James

Rest well, Mama Tyler. I was one of the Dorchester neighborhood kids who hung out many times at your house. I am guilty of picking the figs from your beautiful tree in the back yard. They were just like you, full of sweetness. Much love to James, Debbie and Terry.
