DEAR Jeff and family, so sorry for the loss of your mom, sweet Wanda, I remember all the good times we had at Wal-Mart our talks in the break room. Your mom always had a great smile for everyone. She was a sweet heart, and will be missed. Prayers for you and your family. GOD Bless , Linda Abel

Jeff and Family, I am so very sorry for the loss of your sweet Mama. I had the privilege to know Ms. Wanda from my time in High School, working with her at Sky City. She made the meanest Bacon Egg and Cheese sandwiches! Though little in stature, she was big in heart and always going out of her way to say hello. I have missed her face at Walmart for the last few years where she even then always remembered me and had a kind word and a hello. God bless you. Ms. Wanda was a lovely lady!

Dear Family,
We met Ms. Wanda as the Walmart greeter. Always friendly, helpful, and a smile on her face. We are just one of many that met and remember this wonder person. So sorry for your loss.

Turner and Connie

From the time I met Wanda Berry at the old Walmart Snack Bar she claimed me as her best friend and the last time I saw her at Macon Valley she told my family I was her best friend. My prayers and thoughts are with the family and especially Jeff and Brad!!
