I think this is unbelievably sad that a young girl passed away. I was looking for something else and came across all the kind thoughts and expressions of grief. She was very well liked by everyone. I feel very sorry for her family. And of your course for Wendy. My deepest condolences to the people who knew her. She was loved. Hopefully she was not ill and did not suffer. Love to her family. May she be in heaven. Deepest sympathies mike

It is clearly apparent Wendy was a unique, loving, special, young lady who drew out the best in all people she met. Talented, smart and full of energy qualities not all people possesss. I never met Wendy but can see from what I have read how loved she was and it saddens me when someone passes to early. I've lost many great friends to early leaving behind small children, family and spouses. My heart goes out to her family and friends know the Lord is right there and welcomes these beautiful gentle souls when they come home. I myself live in Philadelphia Pennsyvania and it may seem odd I would leave a comment on someone I never knew while searching for a friend, but I feel for everyone especially her family and siblings. Wendy may not physically be here but know here spirit is and forever lives on in evryones hearts. Chrisit comes to us in mamy ways this time it was through Wendy.

Eva y yo sentimos tu pérdida en el alma. Isabella es parte de nuestra vida y aunque solo te conocí unas pocas veces, tu belleza y tu sonrisa eran inolvidables. Descansa en paz. Nuestro más sentido pésame a tu familia y amigos.

With our younger daughters being good friends for a while, I only knew Wendy a little. But I know how close your family is and how much Isa looks up to her big sister. I can’t even begin to understand what you are going through. Peace to your hearts. You are in my thoughts.

I had the pleasure of being one of Wendy's teachers at ETHS. Wendy had Modern World History with me as a sophomore. She was a thoughtful young woman who was genuinely interested in learning about world and its many cultures. As I watched the slides, I saw how many places around the world that Wendy experienced. I remember Wendy's concern for animals and an excellent project she designed around that topic. Wendy was kind, smart, funny, and well-loved by friends and classmates. I will miss her and wish her family and friends peace and healing.

Prayers and fond memories are what we have to remember our dear Wendy. Remembering her wonderful and gentle soul will forever remain in our hearts. A beautiful soul, full of love and faith, ascended to heaven, away from us but closer to God. Her smile always lit up the room. Wendy was always our partner in crime when we were in Chicago and we are deeply saddened we were not able to see her one last time. You will be truly missed, but never forgotten dear niece. We know you will be well taken care of in heaven with your grandfather Manuel, your great grandmother Angela and your uncle Victor. May you Rest In Peace sweet Angel.

No se cómo empezar sin tener que llorar tu partida. Me recuerdo lo alegre y feliz que siempre andabas. Eras una chivita desde chiquita no por nada dos o tres veces te dislocaron el brazo. Te ganaste mi corazón con tu sonrisa y con tu carácter tan agradable y sencillo. Siempre dispuesta y lista para ir donde te invitáramos. Me agradaba tu compañía,cuando nos acompañabas a uno que otro paseo por que ahora que lo pienso creo que el amor por la naturaleza y los animales era algo que teníamos en común. Un poco más tu que yo. Mientras platicaba con tu tía me acordó de lo que te hacía cuando llegabas o te despedías de mi para hacerte renegar. Siempre te hacía que me dieras muchos besos por toda la cara pero eso a ti no te molestaba. Siempre estaras en mi corazón

Tu partida ha sido tan inesperada, que no creo pueda asimilar que no te veremos más. Es por eso que prefiero pensar que estás de viaje y muy feliz en un lugar hermoso. Siempre te recuerdo lista para irte de aventura con nosotros, ya fuera para ir de camping, o a un football game o irnos como en tus 15 años a Mexico o simplemente en una reunión familiar. Recuerdo cómo te gustaban los perros y siempre estabas jugando con Dylan. También como siempre que nos veíamos llenabas toda la cara de besos a tu tío Israel. Siempre tan hermosa, y con una sonrisa en tu rostro. Las huellas que dejaste en nuestras vidas y corazones son imborrables. Tantas memorias que es imposible pensar solo en una. Siempre te recordaremos con amor. Te queremos mucho con todo el corazón. Tus tíos, Israel y Liliana

We met in labs at Oakton and because of you, chemistry was bearable... I remember during our labs we'd zone out and have side meetings about life in general, and either of us would text each other to see if we should go to class or not. I remember last year around this time when I was panicking about my first party, you were excited and you helped me find the perfect robe, although I ended up making one. I'll never forget the talks we had about our aspirations, and how we helped each other... I'll cherish our memories always, Wendy!

Wendy, we had some really good childhood memories. So many I don’t know where to start. I remember us sitting outside my house in the bench just talking about random things & sometimes we would wait on the paletero man to pass by. I remember walking to the corner of our street to get some fries, I remember we would ride our bikes together at the block party, it feels like just yesterday I would message you to see if you could come over or vise versa. We have some cherishing childhood memories . Unfortunately we grew apart but I will miss you. Rest In Peace beautiful Angel. You will always be remembered.
