I received the sad news and offer my heartfelt sympathy. Wanda possessed great personal charm, sweetness, and understanding. I will miss her warmth. I pay my respects to the memory of a wonderful woman. I will miss her warmth. May God give her family and friends peace and comfort.

You were always a welcoming and hospitable host. I looked forward to seeing you each time I visited in Lincoln over the years. I will miss watching the birds with you, catching up, sharing stories, recognizing simple amusements and laughing easily with a kindred soul. You had a life well lived. You are missed.
