Uncle Norman, Linda, Donna, Todd, Jennifer, and family: I am so very sorry for your loss. Aunt Wanda was a beautiful person and I have many wonderful memories of her. One thing I remember is that she always made me laugh. Perhaps my fondest memory is the times I'd spend the night on the farm, and she'd let me get the eggs from the henhouse in the morning. It is a memory that I will cherish forever. I loved her dearly, and I love you all.
