Our deepest sympathy in your great loss.
Our hearts go out to all of Wanda’s family.
We wish there were something we could do or say
that would ease your pain but know in your heart
we are thinking of and praying for everyone in Wanda’s family.

Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
still loved, still missed and very dear.

Thinking of you at this time of your loss.

Thoughts, Love and Prayers,
Cindy & Freddy Sturgeon
