I met Wendy and Gwain at the Dennis SHINE program and was so drawn to them as a loving couple and especially to Wendy as an outgoing, friendly, caring, warm woman. I am so shocked and saddened for the loss of Wendy for your family and for those of us who had the opportunity to meet her, even briefly.

Dear Gwain any family
I am so sorry to hear about Wendy. I was really shocked to read it in the paper. I would not have known anything about Wendy if I hadn’t seen you at the restaurant a couple of weeks ago. But didn’t realize it had progressed this quickly. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family. I know Dot and Wes thought the world of your family. Sending my deepest sympathy.

I got to know Gawain through our business relationship. I began visiting Gawain in Scottsdale about 10 years ago and Wendy would often join us for dinner. I got to know Gawain and Wendy well over that time and looked forward to our dinners together. I remember Wendy was very happy moving back to the Cape full time. She was very kind and full of life and Gawain and Wendy would treat me like family when I visited. My thoughts and prayers are with Gawain and his family. Wendy will be missed not only by her family but all that got to know and enjoy her friendship.

What initially started as a business relationship some 25 years ago quickly turned into a great friendship with Gwain and subsequently with Wendy. I was fortunate to have been a welcomed guest in both their Scottsdale and Cape Cod homes and Wendy always extended her kindness and generosity. Among my fondest memories of her is when she found out about my love of pies and on one visit made me raspberry pie with home made crust. Wasn’t that special. Among Wendy’s many qualities was her down to earth personality and especially the positive attitude and energy she projected. They say surround yourself with positive people as it will be infectious. Thank you for that gift, Wendy. Gwain, Robert and Kristi, hopefully I can pass it on and in so doing a part of her legacy to all of us. Paul .

Gwain, Kristi and Rob,
I am lost for words and so sorry to hear about Wendy. She always lived life to the fullest and didn’t let anything stop her. I met Wendy in my early twenties and instantly we hit it off. I got married a few years after we met and hoped we would have what Gwain and she had. Such a strong bond and love for her family. Pretty hard to match’. I have so many amazing memories of Wendy she really is one of a kind!! Although I lost touch over the years any time we did talk it was like we never stopped. I think about her often. Just know that Mirco, myself and our girls are thinking of you all!! Such a loss is hard to grasp. Much love and sympathy. xo Donna
