Wanda was a special lady, I remember so well the special memories of going to Hopkins Candy Kitchen with her as a young girl and getting to see how they made peanut patties and peppermint sticks but most important the time she spent with me and treated me as one of her own. Thinking back on all the memories it brings tears to my eyes . From the very first time I met her I remember the warm , kind , heart she had and as a very young girl at the time I could not have asked for a better stepmother. I know she will be missed dearly here on this earth but one day we will all go home to be with our Heavenly Father. I know heaven gained another angel. Thank you for sharing your life with me here on this earth.
