I know I'm late it sharing a thought about Wendy-Faye. It has been difficult to put into words what sort of friend she was to me.

Wendy-Faye was a remarkable woman who wore her hear on her sleeve. She saw the best in people and never hesitated to let you know how she felt about you. What you see is what you get. A quality that seems to be more and more rare in a person lately. This is why I liked her so much.
When I sit and reflect on Wendy-Faye and the challenges she faced, I can't help but be angry. I know what it is like to lose a parent. Magdalene will no undoubtedly be very well looked after by her family and friends in Wendy-Faye's absence. But to have someone taken from you so early is heart breaking. I have no doubt in my mind that Wendy-Faye packed as much motherly moments in, while she had the chance. With Elliott at her side, I'm sure she will continue on and grow up to be of the same caliber of woman as her mother.
The memories I have of her and the moments we shared will be with me as long as I live. Not to mention that laugh and voice.

I missed her when she moved to NS. I now miss her even more.

The credit for the photo is not mine. But I felt it needed to be shared. It's my favorite.

If you were blessed as I was to be a friend of Wendy-Faye’s, you know that she loved her friends like family and made everyone around her feel welcome and special. Wendy-Faye was a sister to me. A new friend who quickly became an old, dear best friend. I know others feel this way as well because Wendy-Faye had the rare ability to instantly connect with people and make your day brighter with her laughter. Her awesome sense of humour was always like a breath of fresh air, adding lightness and energy wherever she went. She was one of the most real people I knew and her ability to be honest and true to herself while holding strong to her faith was something I admired greatly.
We shared so many special milestones together including the birth of our first children (just 4 days apart in the same hospital!), baptisms, birthdays, happy days, sad days, weddings and funerals. Every day was better when shared with her. She will live forever in my heart and I’ll carry her spirit with me as long as I can.
My 3 daughters loved “Aunt Wendy- Faye” dearly and always loved to spend time with her, Elliott and Magdalene. They join my husband Sheldon and myself in sending our deepest condolences and sympathies to all of Wendy-Faye’s family and friends and to anybody else who was fortunate enough to know her and love her 💕.

Wendy Faye’s contagious grin, her wit, her caring: it all shone through. She lived a life knowing she was not better than anyone else based upon religion, ethnicity, colour of skin or station in life. She could and often did find the good in nearly everyone.
I’m extremely introverted. I have problems initiating or maintaining friendships. I’m not the person that seeks out the company of others. Wendy Faye was so direct - I like you and I think you’re really smart and funny and want to be your friend. I could use a friend right now and I’d like to take you to dinner this week because I need to talk to someone. And boy did we talk. We became fast friends; I like to think I was a good friend to her in the only way I know how.

Magdalene, sweet girl, Wendy-Faye’s whole heart personified. Your mom was so proud of your brilliant mind, your shine, your dimples. Know, always, that you are and were loved. Your mom is there, on the waves of the ocean kissing the sand, no matter how many times it is sent away. She is there in the quiet at night. The sadness and tears are hard, but they are a testament to the amount of love that cannot be quantified, a mother’s love for her beloved child. Sing, dance, and be happy, as it is the only thing that your mom ever wanted. You are a small girl, with small hands, but a big heart, a bigger mind, and big eyes. Never stop asking for more, expecting more, and seeing it all. Apologize when you’re wrong, but never for being true to yourself. And if anyone dares get in your way, remember you are a fighter, and if anyone questions that, tell them – you should have met my mother.
Rest In Peace my beautiful friend.

Wendy was a bright and vibrant women. Always ready for a laugh. She was always full of so much love for others and was always looking for fun! Especially when it came to her Magdalene... I came to know the Sitemans very well during there time in Ontario. I was Mag’s bus buddy, babysitter, and friend! I remember going to the Royal Ontario Museum with Wendy and Mag and just seeing the joy in Wendy’s face as Mag ran hand in hand with me from dinosaur to dinosaur. Even just hanging out at there home- Wendy was allows a light of energy and love. She will be deeply missed here on earth, but she is now with the One and only God in the most amazing place.. my heart is with you Elliott, Magdalene, and family.
