    Dear Robin and family,
    My heart is heavy after learning of your sweet mom’s passing. Wanda was a special friend to me at The Haven, and she meant a lot to me during that time and afterwards. Thank you for making sure she received my cards to her.

    May God continue to watch over all her family with His peace and comfort.
    In His Name,
    Sally Watts
