The family would like to thank Dignity Hospice of Chapmanville for all their support and care that they provided to the family during this time. The family would also like to send a special thanks to one of her caregivers, Billie Wallace-Workman, for not only the care she provided to Wanda, but the comfort and friendship that she gave the family as well.
