    Wahwiece was a good friend and a special and unique lady. Nothing slowed her down for long. She loved her family and had a real zest for life. Wahwiece was energetic, happy, optimistic, and extremely creative. I can visualize;her redecorating her heavenly home before she pauses to rest. She will certainly be missed by many.

    Drew I am so sorry for your loss. Wahwiece was certainly a blessing to me during my college years. She served as not only my cheerleader but as a spiritual mentor . She was an excellent role model for wife and mother. and frankly, just a lot of fun to be around. I know she and Bill will be greatly missed.
