To the MacDowell and Erickson families.
I would like to send condolences from the Dirom Family. We go all the way back to elementary school at Somenos, Wendy was a year older than me. She was always the person that was there with a smile on her face and gentle words of encouragement yet get her on the field playing hockey and she was hard working, determined and fierce. I think that is how Wendy lived her life. She will be greatly missed.
