So sorry about Wendy. I found a scripture I like to share at JW.org, Acts 24:15, “there is going to be a resurrection,” I wish your family the very best for the future.
Wendy was a beautiful soul. The love of her husband, family and God were her everything. She was a blessing to all who she meet. May her memory live long.
Wendy, thank you for all our fun talks over the many years. I will miss you. KiwiTania
