    I grew up behind The Mikkos, and I have so many wonderful memories of Wanda. Her kindness, like her beauty, was timeless. She touched so many. Kendra, Kevin and Glenn-I’m so sorry for your loss. Hugs and love always. Debi

    So sorry to read in the Beaumont Enterprise that Wanda passed away. I have many fond memories of dance classes and recitals long ago with Wanda and Kendra. I also remember the beautiful stained glass pictures that Wanda once made. She made one for me of a hummingbird. I will treasure it always. My heartfelt sympathy to her family.
