    I always admired Wanda Fay for her dedication to family and friends. If she loved you – you really knew that she did and if she didn’t well you knew that too. Her fierce love for her boys was amazing; she loved them with a passion no matter what they had done. My deepest sympathy to Tim and his family, I pray your memories and love of each other will comfort you.
