  6. Dear Cosyn family,

    It was a pleasure to know and care for Wanda. Truly a great woman. A friend sent me this message when I lost my mother, it seems to hold true for Wanda; “We will never be the same as we were before this loss, but are ever so much better for having had something so great to lose.”
    Memory eternal dear Wanda.
