Wendy was a caregiver for many people in Trona. Family and friends find comfort in the following words.

Our lives go on without you but nothing is the same.

We have to hide our heartache when someone speaks your name.

Sad are the hearts that love you. Silent are the tears that fall.

Living without you is the hardest part of all.

You did so many things for us; your heart was so kind and true;

And when we needed someone, we could always count on you.

The special years will not return when we’re all together

But with love in our hearts, you walk with us forever.
