Marlene, we are so deeply sorry for your loss. I have fond memories of visiting Aunt Wanda and Uncle Dougie at their house, the excitement of watching them play the lottery, and laughing and giggling a lot. It was always a fun visit. I'm so sorry I'm not able to be there in person to say goodbye to Aunt Wanda, but please know I'm sending my deepest sympathies and warmest memories to you. In lieu of flowers, we've made a donation to the Alzheimer's Association to help fight this terrible disease. I'm grateful she's finally at peace with her beloved husband and brothers and sister. Sending our love, Christi (Snyder), Owen, and Logan Weaver
