Cliff, Charlee, Dylon, Rickee and Randy,

Paul and I have been covering your family in our prayers ever since we learned about Wendee being in the hospital.  It really changed the way we spent our time this past few weeks.  We brought home our 3rd child from the hospital on July 15th and it's been a struggle to be filled with joy over the new life in our home while praying for you over the loss you have suffered.  We have been torn in our joy and sorrow.  Wendee was a woman I personally looked up to from the minute I first met her back at Mt. View HS.  Paul and I taught Rickee and Randy in our 3-5 yr olds class and we had no children yet but loved the girls spunkiness, and of course their hair. :)  The last thing I said to Wendee was...
 'Thank you for being a Mother I can look up to. Thank you for believing in your kids and investing so much time and love into their desires and hopes.  I was never pushed by my mom to follow my dreams and I got into a lot of trouble as a teen. You give me hope that if I encourage my daughter she can be everything I hope her to be as well.  Thank you for your wonderful example."   
A few months back I called her to get information about joining the Saddle Club.  She explained what I had to do and I felt a bit overwhelmed.  She then said 'If you want to join, we'll get it done.  Just let me know and I'll meet you there to help you through the process."  I  hardly knew her and yet she was so willing to help me and be kind to me even though I was taking up her time.   Thank you for sharing your wife and mother with us all.  She is having so much fun in Heaven and I'm sure would be here to help everyone through this loss of God would allow her to... We will not forget you all in our prayers.  Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help...I am a stay at home mom and could do any driving to activities if needed...I'm not the best cook, but we would love to bring you all a meal if and when it's needed...
All our love and prayers,
