Our group of ladies are still at a loss of expressing how much we will miss Wanda at our Lunch Bunch gatherings. No matter what she was going through or how she felt, she always had a beautiful smile on her face and exuded her sweet spirit in all that she said and did. Wanda was a woman of many talents and one of them was the phenomenal paintings she did of our local wildlife. Our hearts are broken but we know she is now in a better place and totally healed, pain free and reunited with Kenny and her Mom and Dad.
