It is with a very heavy heart that I share this. My friend Wendy McLean (aussiseeker71) passed away Sunday, May 3rd, 2009 at 3pm Australia time. She was unconscious and comfortable for the last 12 hours.
I first ‘met‘ Wendy a few years back when she was a regular visitor to the Kaleo Forums. From there our friendship and fellowship developed and spread to others. I am so grateful that we eventually met in person when she made her pilgrimage to America. Actually it was just a vacation but this sounds better, right? Oh, and in case you didn’t realize it, she was from Wonthaggi Australia.
If any of you had a chance to interact with Wendy, consider yourself blessed. She was an amazing person and will be greatly missed but we can take comfort in knowing that she is most definitely with her heavenly Father, worshiping and glorifying Him in a perfected state – free from all sin.
I’ll post more later, but for now, it just still hurts too much to think about.

I am so sorry to hear of you loss, a loss of a friend is devestating at any time…
I have recently lost my wife, a friend, companion and lover, and I am still witing for her to come home. Loss is a terrible thing, and as such I feel for her family.
When the loss of a loved one comes after an illness, a long illness by the looks of things for Wendy, there is some peace for them now that they are at peace… Louise, my wife of nearly 9 years, died suddenly carrying our twins from a Pulmonary Thromboembolism… I am since at peace in the knowing that for her, it was quick and painless, so the doctors and Coroner tells me.
I may not have been here for a long time to comment, but I have been lurking through google reader. Take care my friend…
I’m so sorry, Luke. I remember meeting Wendy when she visited Kaleo with you guys, and she was a very sweet lady. It’s so hard to lose loved ones, even knowing that we’ll see them again in heaven.
