Fred, we are keeping you and the family in our thoughts and prayers. Waunetah was such a special person. We always admired her spunk and knew that she'd tell us exactly how she felt about any topic! She knew how to live life to the fullest and was always up for a new adventure (and she always enjoyed seeing pics of our dogs and cats) She was a true treasure and you were so lucky to have her in your life! God bless, Deb and Gary Brackbill
