A beautiful soul, gone too soon. See you again on the other side.... My sincerest condolences and prayers for the family❤


Wendy girl, when I first met you I thought you were a little bit flaky...I learned that you were a sweetheart and you were good for my "son". We had our differences but you were an amazing wife, mother and daughter in law. I will always love you. Give Tom a great big hug. You both need to watch over us.

My heart is breaking. One of the most beautiful women inside and out we will every have the pleasure of knowing. Our heart goes out to you and your family Dan. We are here if you need anything anytime!


I don't even know what to say. Sitting at your house just 48 hours prior there was no way to see this happening. Seeing your smile light up the room. The laughter. So vibrant. No way this is really happening. For 25 years you have been a constant in my life. Married my best friend. The kind of marriage you can't find anymore. A lasting and loving marriage. Just had your 20 year anniversary and a birthday just last month. This cant be real. Just can't be. Wendy you will forever hold a spot in my heart. The world is a worse place without you in it. I will do what i can to support your husband. Your daughter. Rest in the most beautiful of peace young lady. Until we meet again fly high.

To one of the most beautiful souls I have ever had the chance to know. I don't know exactly how to cope with the fact that you no longer exist. But in all reality, you still do. In our memories you shine like the sun with your bright smile. Your loving and caring heart claims a space in all of our hearts. You have touched all of our souls with your caring and kindness.
