So glad Wanda was my family too. I’ve really enjoyed getting to know her better in the last 10 years. I would stop by the station/store when I was in Goshen to talk with her. It was great that she attended our family reunion & we had a blast at the tavern in Milford, where we cousins had lunch & a lot of laughs together. I will definitely miss her . Much love goes out to her family & I hope I can get to know them better. Love to all.
