    Oh no, that’s awful. RIP Wendy. I’m so sorry you had to suffer from cancer. Thank you for being such a steadfast friend to animals and our wonderful natural environment. You’re going to be greatly missed and your influence extended much further than you knew. My heart out to Stephen and family. Life is a beautiful cycle, and folks who work with the natural world understand this the best imo. May you all find peace and healing in celebrating Wendy’s wonderful impact. ❤️
