I am soooo saddened by the loss of this GREAT WOMAN. She was such a HUGE PART of our support group ALWAYS 100% involved in doing anything she possibly could to help her daughter and the ENTIRE Brain Injury Support GROUP her and Gina being the first people I met when joining. Always sharing a smile, a laugh and WONDERFUL FOOD that she cooked for us. Wava has a heart of gold and is now reuniting with her lost family members in Heaven. I love you Wava, you and Gina are on my heart and mind as I will pray for your family to heal.

Wava has been a member and consistent contributor to Hickory Brain Injury Support Group since its beginning in May of 2012. Wava participated in Catawba Valley Brain Injury Support Group before Hickory Brain Injury Support Group even started. I will miss Wava. She helped with so many things from obtaining funding for tickets to the Hickory Crawdads to help planning the yearly cookout. And, boy, could she cook. Beyond actions, what I will miss most is her kindness to others in the support group and support for other parents and caregivers.
