  1. Wendy, I don’t believe we’ve met, but I’m one of Jonathan’s ‘Hilton stepsisters,’ and I was very sorry to hear of his death. I was a young teenager when my father married Jonathan’s mother, and I remember him as a kind and caring person. I pray God’s comfort for you and for all of his family and friends.

  3. Wendy darling,

    I am so very saddened by Jonathan’s death. He was a delight and meeting you was the very best thing for him. I loved him very much and always had so much fun when Jimmy and I would get together with you and “the boys” at Corky’s house. Please feel free to confide in me about anything. You know Jimmy was a sick man also but I would never be so insensitive to even suggest “I know what you are going through”.

    I just want you to know that i am here for you, anytime, day or night.

  5. Hi Mrs Wendy I’ve only known you at work for a short while but in that small amount of time you have taught me the strength and perseverance we as women have. We first met in the restroom at work an I ask you if you would like to pray with me, not knowing we were going to share the same experience in this life, the lose of our husbands. This is a bond that can never be broken. I am here for you always God Bless.
