Reflections: Josie

This is heartbreaking for me, since Wendy is one of the very few people who have ever been there for me when I was at a point in life where I was so desperate for help that I had no way out....and if it would've not been for her, I would've been in more trouble than one can imagine. She was my savior during this time.

Unfortunately I haven't known Wendy but maybe two years, but I believe fate sent her my way, cause it became apparent very fast that she is someone I would look up to. I admire her spirit, her love and care, and that she never gives up....neither on herself nor on others. I love her sense of humor and the way she makes even sticky situations sound light hearted. I will never forget how she was always there for me when life decided to take another dump on me. There are so many things I want to say but can't, because the words just won't come....but I have the thoughts and the memories in my heart, and nobody can take them away. The only thing I regret is that I never had the chance to meet Wendy in real life.

Wendy....thank you for coming into my life and for allowing me to be a small part of yours as well. I hope that you know how much you are loved. Not only by me but by all your friends and family. And I hope that this love will give you wings, so "travelangel" can travel on as the angel she is on her new journey.

Reflections - Heidi

My thoughts and prayers are with you all during this time. I am blessed
to have been able to see Wendy on Saturday. What a gift that was.
Although her outward appearance was different, I could still see the
"Wendy" spirit shining through. I admire her and from the short time I
have known Wendy, I learned patience and understanding and can honestly
say that I am a better person for having her be part of my life. You are
in my thoughts and in my heart always.

By Brad Paisley.

When I get to where I'm going
On the far side of the sky
The first thing that I'm gonna do
Is spread my wings and fly

I'm gonna land beside a lion
And run my fingers through his mane
Or I might find out what it's like
To ride a drop of rain.

(chorus)
Yeah when I get to where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah when I get where I'm going
Don't cry for me down here.

I'm gonna walk with my grand daddy
And he'll match me step for step
And I'll tell him how I missed him
Every minute since he left.
Then I'll hug his neck.

(chorus)

So much pain and so much darkness
In this world we stumble through
All these questions I can't answer
So much work to do.

But when I get to where I'm going
And I see my maker's face
I'll stand forever in the light
Of his amazing grace
Yea when I get to where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears
Hallelujah
I will love and have no fear
When I get to where I'm going.
Yeah when I get to where I'm going.
