Wendy was a very sweet person and friend. She made a way to hug me every time we met at church and had a smile on her face. She was so proud of her beautiful mums that she loved to show me. I will miss seeing her and that sweet smile from her face. I will be praying for all the family but just know that Wendy is not suffering anymore and she is in the arms of her father!
