“We have a special place in our hearts for Wanda. We met her through offering communion once a month (Grace United Methodist Church). She had such a great sense of humor and made us laugh each time we visited her. She shared her love for her husband many times with us. She also shared with us her joy of knowing God - she would get so excited when she shared this with us - just a joy to watch her expression of love for God. We got her a shepherd's hook and birdfeeder for outside her window. She never let us leave without sharing hugs and she insisted we take a gift with us. The last one was a cute stuffed mouse holding a heart that says "God's Love is So Big!" - which we keep on the dashboard of our car. Thank you, Wanda, for the love you shared with us.”
