To Wanda's family, I want to extend to you my prayers and sympathies in the passing of your wonderful Wanda. I knew Wanda from New Dawn where her beautiful smile, her grace and kindness, and her caring personality lite up the room each time she entered. Our conversations were always nice to be a part of and her story was amazing. May you be at peace now my dear friend Wanda and with your family and friends in heaven. I will miss you and am glad you have been released to heaven where you will have no more pain. It was a pleasure and an honor knowing you. Love, Kathy Slough

Mom, Your smile and laughter will be missed. Your kindness and unselfish giving remembered. My sadness of your leaving is over-ridden with the joy of your long awaited reward of being with our Lord and saviour. I find peace and console with the knowledge that you are b leased.
