I enjoyed a lot of laughs with Ms. Wanda, mostly at Carolyn’s house or Ms. Wanda’s nursing home rooms. So glad to have had the opportunities. Sweet lady and I will miss her!

My deepest sympathies over the loss of your mother. I will never forget my many years with her at White Oak. She was a special lady and fast became a part of our White Oak family. My fondest memories of her are with her friends each evening down in the activity room. My goodness did those ladies have a good time!! I am also reminded of her weekly visits to see me in my office. I know how very much you will miss her. You are a devoted daughter and I pray my own daughters are as devoted to me as you were to Ms. Wanda over the years. May God continue to bless you and your family and may Wanda rest in the peace and comfort of our precious Lord.
