Wanda will always have a very special place in my heart. For several weeks Wanda was sk patient while trying to teach me how to decorate cakes. She was so talented and skilled. I always think of Wanda whenever I pick up my frosting bags. I just know she is smiling down and still laughing with all of us who knew and loved her. Gods blessings to all
