Very sad to hear of Wanda's passing, I just saw it scrolling thru the website looking for another friends passing...too many leaving too soon. I met Wanda & Cindy many years ago in a wilder, crazier, time in life, but even though I hardly ever saw her whenever I did it was like an old reunion, she was always the friendliest person, never knew a stranger...obvious to see from her family!! Prayers for peace & comfort for you all thru the coming days!

RIP pretty lady. You will be truly missed. I couldn't have ask for a better stepmom for Shyann. You loved her for who she was from the start and as her mom I couldn't have been more blessed for you to be in her life. Ty for loving Shyann unconditional. Fly high with no more pain and I know in my heart you will be watching over Shyann . Just also know you was very well loved by us

My sweet sister whom I loved and I know loved me. We didn't have to talk or see each other everyday to understand love is a bond that binds you. The word "No" did not work for us. The hardest request asked of each other was always ok, I can, or when. Not everyone gets a chance to enjoy that. We did. Distance nor time mattered to us. I will miss you, till we meet in our heavenly home. Tell PawPaw I love and miss him. Knowing you are together will ease my heartache.
FOREVER Your Sissy
