Nature Memorial for Wendy

Ken Gracey, President of Parallax Inc recently went on a nature hike and had Wendy on his mind. At some point he set up this nature memorial to Wendy. Note the “W” made from the rocks. Thanks Ken! That was very thoughtful.

At one point I was looking through Wendy’s filing cabinet next to her desk for anything related to the current bills and medical stuff.

Remembering Wendy Jo

Wendy Jo was kind of a realist. She had accepted her fate some time ago and sought to find peace within herself. She had (in her own words) a very inappropriate sense of humor about her situation because she preferred levity over gloom. She always tried to keep people from feeling uncomfortable about her situation by telling jokes or in other ways. The trick was to get a laugh instead of a cry or sad face. Continue reading

Where We’re Currently At

Okay, this will be the final detailed post on Wendy’s condition. The next update on Wendy won’t be until after she’s passed on. That said it’s been a very crazy week and as Wendy would do I am going to issue a TMI warning and say do not read any further if you don’t want the details. I only post this because I know this is what Wendy would post.¬†Okay, you’ve been warnedContinue reading

Help Is On The Way!

So things got crazy over the last few days. Sure. My last post was evidence of that. However there was some background discussion going on that I originally wasn’t fully aware of. Wendy’s sister, Becky, who came out to visit back in April with her husband Scott from New York, was talking to Wendy in the background about coming out to help her out. Continue reading
