Bradley and Logan,
You do not know me but I was Wendy's big sister in Delta Zeta at Brenau Collage. I was so shocked to hear of her passing. One of the gals who graduated with me in 1966 sent me the article.
My thoughts and prayers are with you both. I haven't seen Wendy in 47 years but she always had a special spot in my heart.
