My heart is heavy as I write this. So many, many, many wonderful memories over the years. The trip and time spent with ya'll in Salt Lake City when you lived there; the trip and time spent with ya'll in Reno when you lived there (that's where I learned to play Progressive Rummy). Then when you guys moved to Plano and the multitude of visits there... all the card games and wonderful food and time spent just visiting. Then when you moved to the barn in Anna, I remember giving her perms and hearing her giggle when I "shocked" her hair in rods with cold water, at her request of course, lol; and then when ya'll built your house there across from the barn, and all the CMT we watched! She loved her home!!! She loved her family!!! She was always talking about the grandkids and great-grandkids... I remember her telling me about you guys taking her Miranda Lambert's Pink Pistol, she loved that! I loved getting those last minute calls when they would be headed on the road to Sherman/Denison to eat, maybe after a doctor's visit in Van Alstyne, meeting them at La Mesa, Cheddar's, Hucks, and even a couple of times meeting and visiting with her while she got her hair done at the hairdresser in Sherman. While Wanda was an excellent cook, no one could rival her Mac and Cheese or Lasagne, just to mention a couple of things... she was an awesome person as a whole, and I am so much of a better person because of her and her friendship and love she poured into me over the years...she meant the world to me! I enjoyed our trips out shopping at Macy's and eating out at Mimi's in Allen, AND having coffee when I would drop by to see her, no matter what time of day or night I came (thanks for your tolerance of my late nights Jerry..;O). She blessed us with so much help with our rehearsal dinner for our wedding, (awesome Brisket and the fixin's that people are still talking about 27 years later, with Jerry's help, of course)... and being willing to stand in for Dale's mom if need be. I am happy for Zak and I that we came by before we left for SLC, and glad for her that she isn't in pain anymore and at peace with the Lord. We will continue to pray for Jerry, Penny, Sarah, David and all the great-grand babies... I know there is a void in my heart and can only imagine how you all feel... I loved my cousin to pieces and always will!!! Jana Pilkilton Dennis, October 16, 2017 I am so sorry for your loss. All of the family are in my prayers. Lou Crouch, October 14, 2017 Wanda was such a special cousin to us for many years. There are so many memories of her through the years that we will cherish forever. She was a big part of our family and will be missed so much from this life, but she is with the Lord from the moment she breathed her last breath on this earth. It gives us great comfort to know that we will see her again one day. I leave this verse with those she left behind. "Be strong and courageous and do not be afraid, do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go" Joshua 1:9. You will be missed greatly. Laryy & Lori Kremling, October 14, 2017 Our condolences to Jerry and family. Wanda and Nell Teeter were very close growing up, far apart in later years, but now can be together once again. Such a wonderful woman! JC & Teresa Teeter, October 12, 2017 I am so sorry for your loss, I know in my heart she was the world to you all. She will be missed, just try and remember all of the good times y'all shared. My prayers are with you all. Joyce Mayes, October 12, 2017 Wanda was a loving, pleasant, caring person who remained a faithful friend through many years and though many miles apart. We were blessed to have known Wanda and Jerry. We know God will be a friend and comfort to Jerry, Penny and family. Pastor LeRoy and Gwen Herder, October 12, 2017 Aunt Wanda always held such a special place in my life even though she lived so far away. I will always treasure her stories of my Pawpaw Wilfred and her that she would tell. An her big squeezing hugs she would give that were so tight I knew they would last time that next time. And next time oh what a joyous reunion will have in heaven. All my love to my family in Texas, Melissa
