I always enjoyed Wanda's wit and humor. I deeply admired the tremendous bond and love she had for her grandchildren. I have many fond memories of all the times my daughter spent at Wanda's house playing with her cousins. She truly made things extra special for them. I will never forget the huge occasio  n she made of the holidays and Jaeda and I are forever grateful for the memories we have of her.

My condolences to the Harrison family. Wanda was a wonderful lady. I knew Wanda because of the friendship with her and my sister, Marcia. Wanda was a fun-loving person and always had a laugh you couldn’t forget. She will be sadly missed. God bless you all.

Our condolences to you, Vi.  We know how close you & Wanda were and of the great care you gave her the last couple of years.  So happy you had six quality days at the end and were able to say your good-byes.  She so appreciated your love and concern and for being there for her every need!  She is at peace now—smiling down on you.
