I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember Mrs. Wadleigh as a wonderful woman full of spunk and always spoke her mind. I am glad I did visit her last year, had lunch with her & Marion and worked on one of her puzzles. She always treated me like a member of the family. You must be thankful for all the wonderful memories as they will get you through this difficult time. I am so so sorry I can’t be there for her service but I will keep all of you in my thoughts.
