Some of my funniest memories is she caught me chewing gum in her house and she told me I had to spit it out, because the grand kids was not allowed so neither was I. So evertime I went to visit I would spit my gum out before I walked into the door. Or the time we went to the store and she would push all the buttons on the toys so they were all making noise at the same time. She just made life fun no matter what was going on in our lifes. I will cherish my precious memories I have of her forever. Love you Wanda til we meet again. Robin & Christopher Porch
