"A breathtakingly beautiful journey through joy, grief, adventure, and profound loss. Wanda leaves her legacy of honesty, bravery, discovery, and love within the pages of this book. Her daughter has constructed Wanda's final message in sweeping stories that will inspire readers to embrace all of life, including its inevitable ending chapters, with grace, wide-eyed curiosity, belly-laughs, and heartfelt gratitude. You will feel a mother's love, to the moon and back."
Jennifer Vaughn, Emmy-nominated, award-winning TV News Anchor, and author, Last Flight Out, and Throw Away Girls

"Wanda Stairs Howard was many things to many people but first and foremost, she was a mother, grandmother and wife. Her daughter Lorna’s book is an account of how Wanda took what was left of her life and squeezed it until the pips squeaked, how she and her tireless ‘TeamWanda’ celebrated her life whilst she was still living it, and how eventually they set her free for the ultimate journey.

This book was written because so many people responded so strongly to her story as it played out through the medium of Facebook and many of those people asked Lorna to put her mother's story into print so that she could inspire others who weren't lucky enough to know her personally. By the end of the book, I hope that readers will feel like they knew Wanda personally and that many will take comfort and inspiration from her life and death."
