  • I’m amazed of how strong Wanda really was, who goes through all of that pain without stopping only to wake up one day unable to walk. I can’t begin to imagine the blow she felt finding that she had stage four Cancer let alone the pain your family felt and is still feeling from her departure. Wanda had a zest about her that I never saw in anyone else, i know she loved her family and her life, she didn’t miss a beat. It’s easy to say she didn’t suffer long, I’m sure it was like an eternity while laying in her hospital bed trying to cope. I glad I got the chance to see her smiling face almost two years ago. May peace be with all of you, see you later Wanda! Love you!
