So sad, met Wanda when we travelled from the UK to investigate Bobby Mackey’s, she gave us a tour of the local area and we had a great time, had so many plans with projects between us pending, can’t believe she has gone. She was a wonderful person.

After I read about Wanda’s recent death after just 59 short years of precious life, I wanted to express my feelings of sympathy for Wayne and the Stephenson family and friends. I know Wayne has left you with many precious memories and will be greatly missed. When our loved ones fall asleep in death, the pain and grief seems unbearable. Our loving God, Jehovah (Psalm 83:18), understands how we feel and he comforts us by means of his word the Bible. Psalm 34: 18 tells us: “Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.” Jehovah invites you to throw all your burdens on him and he will sustain you in your time of grief. Most of us have seen this enemy death claim the lives of people dear to us. But Jehovah God promises to destroy this enemy, death, once and for all. Rev. 21: 4; tells us: “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” (Isaiah 25: 8, 1 Corinthians 15: 26) Isaiah 26:19 “Your dead will live……And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life.” Isaiah 25:8 “He will swallow up death forever. For Jehovah himself has spoken it.” For more comforting scriptures please visit: http://bit.ly/1K38EFt. It has given me hope, strengthened my faith and helped me find the answer to Why? I know it will do the same for you. John 17:3 God’s kingdom that Jesus taught us to pray for at Matt. 6: 9, 10 will bring about these wonderful promises including the resurrection. None of us are guaranteed tomorrow, but we are all guaranteed a resurrection (John 5: 28, John 6: 40, John 11:23-25) I offer my sincere condolences to the family.

I pray it will bring you comfort to please watch this faith strengthening video: “Can The Dead Really Live Again?”

My deepest sympathy in the loss of your love one. Phil 4:6, 7 will help you receive the peace of God. John 5:28, 29 assures Jesus will restore life to those who has died. These are wonderful blessings to look forward to knowing your loved one is in God’s memory. Hope this thought brings comfort.

A group of us met Wanda at Bobby Mackys. We did a short investigation and sat with Wanda for a while. I will never forget her kindness, her friendliness and her smile. This was about 8 years ago, and I have thought many times of our encounter.
I know Wanda is in Heaven, and I want to offer my sincere condolences to all of her Family and loved ones……

Wanda and I met in a very unconventional way, we realize that we both had the same first and second name on Facebook many years ago. We started a wonderful friendship that I cherished through the years, I used to chat with her on and off, she was a sweet and loving soul. She loved her family, her children, her grandchildren and very much loved her great-grandchildren. Rest in paradise twin I’ll miss our little chats 😢💔😭
