She Must and Shall Go Free

this blog is dedicated to the one...
the only...

Wendy D'Lyn Stivers

All of this is for leaving her out of the posts about our trip to Maryland and D.C. I have to mention that our time in Maryland was fun for us because Wendy flew in on Fri. morning and stayed with us until we all flew out on Sun. morning.

For those of you who do not know of Wendy...let me tell you about her...

We met Wendy when she first started working at interlinc with me a few years ago now. We eventually became friends through working at the same place and through our same frustations with people and the jobs we held...Amy was also temping there when Wendy started working but stopped soon thereafter.

I have to mention that our lives have been enriched for knowing Wendy.

When you think of a person who puts their friends before their own needs...Wendy is a prime example. Even when we moved further south to Spring Hill she would come visit us all the time even when other people said it was too far to drivefrom Nashville. She has since also dog sat for us when we had a random trip out of town. Bugsy and Rupert love their aunt Wendy! She also was a good friend to Olivia, when Olivia was asked by her mom who she wanted to invite to her birthday party first 3 people she mentioned were...Amy, Isaac, Wendy...awesome coming from a 3yr. old. Wendy loves life and loves to laugh at all that it entails. There is never a dull moment when she is around and you can't but laugh and love her.

Unfortunately, last November Wendy revealed that she was going to move back to Pittsburgh to be closer to family. So came the beginning of the year and Wendy moved back to PA. It was hard to see her go, but it was what she had to do, and for that it was all understandable.
So this trip was the first time that we were able to see Wendy since she had left TN.
And we loved it!

Thank you, Wendy, for showing us what a true friend is, for enriching our lives, and for the life long friend that we will never ever forget. Even though you do not live in the same area any more, you are thought of and prayed for often.
