Wanda always had a full trust in her Heavenly Father. I never saw or heard her blame her illness on Him in any way. I praise Him that she is now eternally in His presence. She will certainly be missed by her family and friends. May God bless you, Jimmy. You were certainly an extraordinary caregiver.

This absolutely breaks my heart! Mrs. Wanda was the sweetest lady ever. I had the pleasure of knowing her since I was a little girl. She always had a smile on her face and always gave the best hugs and Sunday school lessons. She will be missed by many! Tell my nanny Sandra Pittman i said hello and I miss her deeply. I know it will be a happy and rejoiceful reunion for you two. I am praying for brother Jimmy and the rest of the family.

Wanda was a guiding light in this shadowed world. She always offered encouragement and inspiration to all who needed one or the other. I so enjoyed knowing her and sharing in Bible Studies with her. I will forever carry that beautiful face and light of hers which she always shared in my heart forever.

Wanda was a very special lady. I know she will be greatly missed by the entire family, but knowing she is celebrating in Heaven hopefully gives you some peace. I am sure as soon as she gets done visiting with family that has gone on before, that she and Connie will be together again - matching outfits by mistake and looking for that great bargain. She was a blessing to anyone who knew her and I am thankful to be one of those people.
Keeping all of you in my prayers in the coming days,
Jackie
