“A mother’s Love is like no other”
Dear Nikki, Chantelle and families,
As you mourn the loss of your mother remember all the happy times you spent with her. She tried to do her very best to raise you with love and respect, teaching you life’s lessons as you went through childhood, teenage years and then adulthood. She raised two pretty amazing beautiful women.
Here is a poem I found that expresses words from a mother to her children:
I am at peace, my soul’s at rest
There is no need for tears
For with your love I was so blessed
For all those many years.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all
Dear Nikki, Chantelle and Lindi and your children and families. It is always very sad to say goodbye to a Mother you loved so much. Wendy was a very kind sweet woman who always had something funny to say and was fun to be around. She loved her family very much. You have so many happy memories to remember your mother by. She will always be in your heart.
To Glen, Nicki, and Chantelle and the entire Switzer family, I would like to convey my sincere condolences on the Passing of Wendy. I was very saddened on receiving the news. I’d known Wendy for 40 Years. I had many thanksgiving suppers at her apartment, with her family and Glen’s. I’ll always remember her laugh, and the fact I couldn’t beat her on the pool table.
The infectious laughter, the good times we had will always be in my memory. You always stood by me in friendship no matter what, good or bad. I will miss you! Rip Wendy
Dearest Nikki, Chantelle and families, my love and prayers are with each of you during this very sad time saying good-bye to Mom. Try to remember all the good times and memories you all shared over the years. “A beautiful life has come to an end. She died as she lived, everyone’s friend. She was always loving, thoughtful and kind. What a precious memory she left behind. Treasure Wendy, God, in your garden of rest, for in our world she was one of the best.” Forever in my heart, Donna and family.
I have a memory to share. Aunty Wendy came to visit around my sister Aleesha’s 3rd birthday. I went to Toys’R’Us with her and my Mom to get Aleesha a present. Aunty found a little blonde doll that looked like Aleesha and decided to buy it for her. Then she saw a doll next to it that had brown curly hair like mine. She smiled and bought it for me (despite my mom’s protest haha) so that my sister and I could play together. That’s how I’ve always remembered her and will continue to do so.
Love from BC during this difficult time.
To Chantelle and all the family. My deepest sympathy to you all for your loss. It’s been a very long time, but from what I remember of Wendy was her huge heart and always welcoming to everyone. So sorry, Lisa Buchinsky (Conrad)
