Ms.Wanda was one of the kindest beautiful lady I have ever met. She a great Christian person and taught that to her children which she raised 3 great ones and some wonderful Grand Children and Great Grands. She showed them love up and beyond the highest.
I know that she is up there now making sure that they are all taken care of in their time of sorrow. She will be up there with her eye upon them for ever until they meet her again in her forever home with God.
