    Wendi was always funny and fun no matter what, would light up any room. You could not be in her presence without feeling she loved and valued you as a friend. Rest in peace, dear Wendi.

    Wendi was one of my best friends during high school and afterwards. I truly regret losing touch with her later. I will always remember her smile, laughter, and adventurous spirit.

    So sorry to hear this. I didn’t know her real well, but she was always sweet and friendly to me.
