Regrettably, I have not kept up with my cousins and therefore did not know you but I do know that Billy (Bill Gleason), Aunt Phyllis (Phyllis Gleason), and many others love you and will miss you. Rest in Eternal Light.

This beautiful lady gave me my first perm when I was in 4th grade. She pierced my ears in 2nd grade and even before any of that, she was my babysitter and dear friend of my family. I remember when she was just dating Bill. I have vivid memories of her wedding and how the song "The Rose" was sung that day. She was the very definition of love and joy. Always smiling. Always kind. Always beautiful. She would project so much positive, loving energy everywhere she went. R.I.P. Wendy. You're gonna be missed dearly.
