    Aunt Wanda,
    You were loved more than you ever knew. We will miss you forever. I remember babysitting your kids, my mom and dad taking you out for your 21st birthday, you borrowing my belly dancing costume and so many more things. May you feel the love now. Rest in peace.
    Carolyn (Jameson) Bast
