I have known Wanda since I was a child. One of the kindest, funniest, and beautiful people I have been privileged to know. I am better For having had her in my life! She will be missed here on earth, but heaven definitely welcomes another Angel...

I started doing Wandas hair in 1986 at Sears in the beauty shop. She was always sweet and such a beautiful person inside and out. I always enjoyed visiting with her and making her beautiful for dances she and Bill would attend. I was so shocked to see she had passed. I'm so sorry, the world is dimmer without Wanda being here. God Bless you all. Rest in Heaven sweet friend
