  • To The Family of Wanda Thomas:
    It’s with a sadden heart to hear that my Dear Friend put on her wings and took flight to a room reserved by God just for her. I will miss her smile, and I always referred to her, “AS MY GIRL FRIEND” when she came into the lobby on her scooter driving fast. Wanda is another brave soldier in Gods army that He retired from duty. Rest well my friend, rest well. Love Missionary Mrs. Vanessa Ingram (Chelten Apartments)
