May the God of all comfort sustain your family during the days ahead Psalms 119:76

Wendy and I had walked in active addiction together and our paths had split briefly when I began recovery, but by the grace of God I had the honor of walking alongside Wendy through her beautiful year in recovery. Wendy always lit up a room with her smile, warmed your soul with her hugs, touched your heart with her kind words, and her newfound passion for life and desire to help others who are still lost in addiction was just beautiful! She overcame her addiction and she was ready to overcome the cancer through her faith and hope in Jesus Christ. My heart is breaking at the tragic loss of my beautiful sissy but I can take comfort knowing that she is in Heaven with Jesus, with her new body that is free from pain, free from sorrow, and free from disease. You won the battle beautiful and until God calls me home where I will see your beautiful face again, I will honor your life and keep your memory alive as I advocate for those who are still fighting the battle of addiction.

I love you Wendy and I am missing you
