  • I share your grief at the loss of Wanda. She was a truly remarkable woman, so loving and giving, even when she was so sick.

    I lost my wonderful husband of 50 years just a few months ago and I know only too well the emotions you are dealing with and I have found out that those who have also suffered a great loss are the ones who understand the most. I am here to help in anyway I can. Love, Judy
