I'm so sorry to hear the news about Wanda, and I wish I could be there for the funeral. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers.
I loved Wanda and Ronald, and I'll always be grateful that we connected with them at my brother's funeral and kept in touch after that. We had lots of good times together, especially when we would meet in Lansing, and the week I spent at their place was very special to me - a great memory.
