Wanda was a nice person and always nice to talk to and visit with. I was shocked to hear of her passing. Lee you have my sincere condolences. I have just had shoulder surgery and will not be able to visit with you at this time .

My cousin Wanda was a very special person, so kind and loving to all. She was an amazing daughter, wife, mother, sister, cousin, caregiver, friend, and the list goes on and on. She always spoke with a smile and I never heard her ever say anything bad about anyone. I have fond memories of summer visits to her Aunt Kathleen and Uncle William’s home in the 60’s and great fun times in Minnow Branch visiting Mama Cross. Losing her so unexpectedly will be a great loss for all those who love and needed her here on earth. As a mother who has lost a child myself, I know there is some joy for her today, on Mother’s Day, to once again be with her sweet baby boy, and the others in her family she has loved and lost.
