May you rest in peace my friend. I will never forget the year of 1983. I still see your smile and cherish the memories.

Wendy and I became friends when we were about 4-years-old. We were close in elementary school, drifted apart in junior high, but came back together in high school. We went through cosmetology training together at the North Arundel Vo-Tech Center with fellow Archers Joanne Grimes, Kim Butler and Susan Lewis.

After graduation Wendy and I both headed to Anne Arundel Community College. Some of my favorite memories of that first year of college are carpooling with Wendy. Her car had a sun roof and a cassette player, and she would let me blast David Bowie's "Modern Love" every morning.

Wendy seemed to blossom after graduation when she began her career as a hair stylist working for the Hair Cuttery. For a short while we worked together at the Hollinswood Plaza shop. Wendy loved dancing, music and spending time with her friends. My nick-name for her was "Billy" after Billy Idol because she cut her hair in a short almost punk style and bleached it blonde.

We didn't get to see very much of each other the last year or so before she was taken from us because I was so busy working full-time and going to college full-time. About a month before her fatal car accident she stopped in to see me at work one night. She wanted me to go out dancing but I couldn't because of work. Her last words to me were "You work too hard. Slow down and enjoy life." She was 100% correct.

Wendy was one of the kindest, sweetest souls to every grace this world. I think about her often and still miss her very much. Every time I hear a Bowie or Idol song I think of her and the fun times we shared.

Until we meet again, my friend!
