“My mom loved helping others. Whether it was giving to charities or simply buying a stranger’s groceries, she always had a giving heart. So in lieu of flowers, she would love it if you shared a random act of kindness to a stranger in her honor”.

I have lived on the same cul-de-sac as Milton and Wendy for 11 years. They were the first ones to welcome us and they were so many cul-de-sac chats with Wendy. I’m so sorry to hear of her passing. She was such a joy and really looked out for me and my boys and my animals. Nothing delighted her more than the way my cats would come and visit her on the porch. I would get a call from time to time and it was always Wendy saying look out the window and there would be a family of deer in her front yard. She was always so sweet and such a joy. She will be missed. Please let us know if there’s anything we can do for you Milton.

I have known Wendy and Milton since I was a kid. At least 30 years plus. My memories of Wendy include how happy and welcoming she always was every time I saw her. She would always give me a big hug. My family took many car trips with Milton and Wendy and we will always have fond memories of her overflowing happiness and laughter. She was always so fun to be around. My most recent memories of Wendy were how she loved my daughter Anna. Wendy always asked about her and really made a point to spend time playing with Anna. Wendy showed love for Anna just as if we were family. Wendy felt like part of our family and will be missed beyond words. I know my Dad is giving her a big hug in heaven.

Benny and I are in the Creepers Car Club with Milton and Wendy, so we've known them for about 30 years. Wendy was a good friend and so sweet and funny, loved to tease and laugh. We traveled along with them to numerous car shows, always a joy to be around. The ladies loved to shop while the guys looked and talked cars. We also enjoyed going out to eat with them. Several years ago while at a car show in Pigeon Forge, Waylon Jennings drove up to stay at the hotel
we were staying at, saw Milton's Classic car and asked Wendy to take him for a ride, which she gladly did and she was thrilled and she talked about it often.

Wendy will be very much missed.

Milton please let us know if you need anything or just want to visit or need to talk, we are here for you buddy.

Love you guys,

Linda Denson

Wendy, your kindness and heart were so much bigger than your body. You were known to me as "Mom3". My own, Miss Linda, and you. I will cherish every memory of our roadtrips to Fan Fair, getting every picture, going to every concert, shopping at the outlet malls, and staying at Marriott. Thank you for bringing me into your home, introducing me to your sweet husband, Milton, and sharing your love and laughter with me. You will always hold a special place in my heart.
Have fun with the angels now. Until we see each other again.
Love,
Chris

Wendy worked for Mason-Hall & Co. for 20 plus years. She was loved by her bosses, Richard and Alfred. She was "the best" at what she did. We send blessings to her family.

I was so sorry to learn of Wendell’s passing. We were classmates at Cherokee High. I enjoyed seeing her at our last class reunion a few years ago. In fact, if I recall correctly, I believe she was voted the girl who had changed the least.

Milton and family. I am so sorry to hear of Wendell’s passing. I will always remember the great times that Max and I had with you and Wendell and the entire Milford Family. My heart and prayers are with you. Since I live in Florida now will not be able to make it to the funeral. Will be thinking of all of you. Love to all, Judy

Wendell was such a sweet lady. When we ran into each other we would spend an hour or so talking and laughing. She was delightful and funny to talk and visit with. I am very sorry for her passing.
