Hello Rob, Lynn, Robbie and Ian,
So sorry to hear of
Wanda’s passing. I remember her fondly — gussying up to go dancing and her frequent sojourns to Foxwoods. She was a kind and loving spirit and I remember partaking of the aforementioned golubki. I think of you often and remember the good times we had together as parents of young children. We met you and Wanda when we moved to Seven Pines 35 years ago!
Sending love and regards,
Vicki, Marlo and Tim
