I am so sorry to hear of Wanda’s passing. Used to LOVE to swing by her house “back in the day” and visit when my boys were little. She and Jack had LOTS of pecan trees and would share with me and the boys. I used to love hearing how Jack grafted so many of those trees that grew on their property. She was such a sweet lady and will be sorely missed. Praying for peace and comfort for all the family.
I am so sorry to hear of Wanda’s passing. I just saw her gravesite today.
She was a very special lady, always there to help others until she couldn’t.
Prayers for comfort and peace to Eddie, Betty and Peggy
We sure lived moved Wanda and Jack. Many memories together as we served at FBC Whitesboro. Until we meet again. Pastor Johnny and Pam Funderburg
My thoughts and prayers are with Eddie, Betty & Peggie. Your mother was a wonderful person, as your father was. They were a perfect match. May you be at peace knowing she is with our Lord & Savior.
your comments will be thought of often.
Your note brought back many good memories of exploring under the bridges and down the creeks as we rode bicycles back and forth from our houses
i always had the downhill ride home!
