To Wanda’s Entire Family
Please accept my sincerest condolences to your mother, grandmother and many friends. I have so many wonderful memories of your mother Wanda and all the times we spent together. The many phone calls we spent talking about our children where they were and what they were doing. The ceramic’s she helped my boys make for me for Mother’s day and my Birthday was a treasure. I still have all those pieces and everytime I see them it reminds me of her and all of you.
One day on my porch I opened the door and their was Cliff, what a wonderful surprise to see him and he showed me his soberity coin, he was so proud. I was so proud of him. We talk a lot about those days out on her farm wonderful memories. Having her for 95 years is a blessing in itself and I will keep you all in my thoughts and prayers.
