    Jeff and Alan – I was so sorry to hear of Wanda’s passing. She was always so very kind to me and I had much admiration for her. Unbeknownst to her, she gave me courage one time when I really needed it and I’m forever grateful. Wanda had a beautiful smile and infectious laugh – I loved being around her. She touched my life deeply. I’m thinking of you and praying for your strength. Your mom loved you both so much – you were her pride and joy. Much love to you both.
