Sheri & Linda, I am so very sorry for your loss. Aunt Wanda was one of the kindest and most thoughtful people I have ever known. I will never forget the Birthday Cards and all the heartfelt talks she and I have had. Her continued support and counseling thru Mothers illness will never be forgotten. As always you have my love.
