    Since we were little girls, you were the one with the smile that would light up a room. Always kind in dance class and laughing along with me, when we should have been paying attention. By the time we graduated from high school and thereafter, we’d greet each other with laughter before even hugging! We loved you then and now. I pray for peace for your parents and may God’s love be constant for Rob, Chad and the little ones. You were an angel here on earth, now you’ve been given your wings. Love you girl, Edlyn (c/o ’96 and your brown-skinned G-girl)

    The world has lost one of the loveliest, kindest people I’ve had the privilege of knowing and calling “friend”. I’ll never forget singing at the top of our lungs in her car, windows rolled down, on trips to the beach and to visit her brother in KY. My heart goes out to Wendy’s family and those that were closest to her…heartbreaking and no doubt her sweet legacy will live on.

    So very sorry Annie to hear this. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and all your family.

    A great friend that the world was blessed to have. I’ll always remember her love of the Florida Gators and great sense of humor. She could always make me laugh. The brunch Kara and I shared with Wendy and Rob after Sam and Shannon’s wedding is one of my most treasured memories. Very sad but so glad to have had her in our lives.

    I know Wendy best as the very brave and kind Mom who helped coach Charlie’s soccer team at practices for an entire season even though she was not a soccer player herself. Especially as a new soccer coach, I was grateful for her help and encouragement at practices. I am also grateful to have her and Rob’s son, Charlie–such a kind, funny, enthusiastic soccer player and child–on the team. All the team’s prayers are with your family!
    Coach Stephanie
