    I’m very sad to hear the passing of Wendy. We were very close friends in her tour of South America for 2 years in the 80s. I hope there is an afterlife where we can meet up again.

    Never was someone braver or stronger in a battle of this magnitude. Wendy with the loving support of Peter faced it all with determination, stamina and the will to live every moment to its fullest. She will be missed but never forgotten. Working with her for several years and seeing her outside of work has given me great memories to hold on to and treasure.
    Till we meet again.
