Our loves are brighter because we knew Wendy. She struggled daily but I never heard her complain, she was a listening ear and a loving hug even in her pain.
My favorite memory of her is with our littlest guy on the beach in Perdido. She didn’t know it, but she was a talented artist of many platforms, and she captured the joy of him running around on that beach in a perfect shot. To me this showed her gift to find wonder and joy in every small thing ~
Our favorite father / littlest son picture is another one take by her, Jaxson sitting on Daddy’s shoulders seeing the fast cars loud and in charge at ‘dega ~!
She was also someone I admired for her ability to dress like a princess to go out at night, after she’d spent the morning hunting, killing and field dressing her own deer !!
She will be greatly missed.

My favorite memory of Wendy was the time she drove Kristina and I to mississippi for an InSync concert. We had the best time! We stopped to see the alligators on this little ass boat. I was scared to death! Wendy on the other hand was fearless! Her presence was fun, full of energy, and she loved to see Kristina and I happy. In the car ride to mississippi she would sing to the top of her lungs just to make us laugh! I felt no pressure when she was around. She lived her life to the fullest no matter what life throw at her! She was a great person to be around and will me missed dearly!Fly high Wendy and be free of all this pain the world has put on you! I love you and we shall meet again. Shannon.
