  1. My many thoughts and prayers are with all family and friends.

    Being our neighbor, Wendy was a very special friend to me, my son Scott and our furry friend Clark. She will be missed terribly by all of us, and maybe most of all by Clark, who Wendy would always care for whenever we were out of town. Her Mustang parked out front of her house was always an indication that summer was finally here! I will miss that car. But every blue with white racing stripe Mustang I see, I will forever be reminded of Wendy with a big smile on her face. We loved Wendy and miss her already.

    Best wishes to all family members and loved ones through this time of grief.

    For the short time I got to know Wendy I was lucky to know her, she made such an impact on me and others. I have come to know her as hard working, patient and passionate about her family and friends. She nurtured all of us at Waste Management and as a new employee; she took me under her wings and made me a better performer. I will cherish all that she has taught me and hope that I can make her proud.

    My condolences to Wendy’s family, friends and co-workers.

    God Bless.

    Not sure where to start….it is with a very heavy heart that I send my thoughts and prayers to Chrissy and Nikki. Your mom was a beautiful, smart, amazing woman, who I adopted as a mom away from mom. She always had great advise and a warm hug when ever I needed one. I know how much you both meant to her, you were her world. She was so proud of the both of you and cherished her time that she got to spend with her girls. I feel very blessed to have been able to be part of Wendy’s life. When I moved away, I went around the office and said my goodbyes to everyone. All teary eyed I saved your mom for last…and said good-bye. She gave me heck in her motherly way, and said, “this is not good-bye, it’s see you later”. That is how I have chosen to deal with this heart ache. I’ll see you later Wendy….take care girls, you now have a beautiful Angel with butterfly wings watching over you.
    Many hugs, Rejane

  10. My deepest sympathies to Nikki & Chrissy, I’m really going to miss your mom as a client. She always brought sunshine to the room when she’d come in. She was one of my favourite tanners, I always looked forward to my day when I saw her name booked on the page. She was the friendliest, sweetest client I’ve had in 3 years and she will be greatly missed by the fabutan staff. I’m so sorry for your loss

    Nikki, Chrissy and Family, my most deepest respect and prayers go out to you on this hard day. I will hold your mother in my heart for the rest of my life. She welcomed me with open arms at work and since then never closed them. Words cannot explain how she impacted my life with her words of kindness and wisdom. She was like a mother figure to me and please know that her day was never complete unless she talked about the love she had for you both. Although she is not with us in person, she is now watching over you from above as your personal guardian angel. It was an honor and privilege to have met and known your mother. My condolences to both of you and your family.

    Chrissy, Nikki and family, I just wanted to offer my most sincere condolences. I didn’t know Wendy well but when we did cross paths she always had a smile on her face and was saying something to make me laugh.

    I’ll always remember her with a colourful Margarita in her hand and a huge smile on her face!

    I wish you all strength going forward, my prayers have and will be with you.
