"Two years without you.
Missing you very much.
Keep watching over us.
Love you always!"
"Our dear friend Wendy, today a beautiful sunny day, your rays of sunshine and your happy spirit shines on us. I can't believe it has been two years today that you left this world and journeyed to heaven. We miss you and especially missed you and thought of you at the garage sale at our house when you used to bring stuff to sell that you had a hand in branding yourself. You are talented, loving, creative and free spriited. We miss you and reminisce of the times we shared with you. Love, an, laura and anabelle"
"Think about you everyday. Miss and love you very much!
Watch over us."
"Happy Birthday Wendy.... we remember you and reminisce of all the wonderful moments we shared with you. You are forever with us and miss you whole-heartedly.
Take care of each other, you and Bill. Even in spirit, we know you are watching over all of us...your girls are growing up to be beautiful girls...everytime I see them, I see a reflection of you. Matt is watching over them like a hawk, no surprise there ...you would be proud. We love you and continue to keep you in our hearts..xoxoxo an, laura and anabelle"
"It was a year ago on a beautiful Wednesday morning you joined Heaven.
It still hurts.
It still feels unreal.
We still miss you always.
We love you always.
We will never forget.
You'll always be close and in our hearts.
Watch over us (like a hawk).
You are forever beautiful!"
I was thinking about you since last year. I'll always miss you!
It'll always be "aloha" from me to you. I can't believe it's been a year since you departed. I miss you so. At times I feel I'm in denial of your passing. Maybe it's because I never got the chance to talk to you one last time before you left. These days may have passed but time has kept you beautiful in my heart. I will always remember you. I wrote a short poem to describe how I felt since your passing. I hope you will forgive me for the time I missed talking to you.
It’s been a year since your passing
When I stop to think of the time missed
I never thought I won’t see you again
I’ll never forget
I’ll see you again
When the words I should have said
Would come to haunt me again
In my darkest hour I think of you
I'll never forget
I love you
You never really left
I know I'll see you again
Smiling back at me"
It has been a difficult year without you. I find comfort and peace knowing you are always around us. Thank you for listening to my constant nagging to watch, protect, and guide Matt and the girls. We depend on your love, strength, and fearlessness to ride through all the bumps on the road. Continue to show me your big bright smile. Loving you always- your sis, Jen"
"Hi Sis. Miss you! Was that you today at Tanger? I know you were watching us. You were a beautiful hawk. We were at your favorite shopping place, The Christmas Tree Shops. Plenty of Nutcrackers and Christmas stuff.
Baby Kylie is fine. Just a little boo boo.
You are always with us. Love you! You keep us going!"
"Happy Birthday Wendy! I know it's tomorrow but I couldn't wait.
Missing you a lot. I keep wishing that you are on this great big long trip and that you will be back very soon. I think of you everyday. Thank you for watching us. You are the best! Love you always."
"Merry Christmas Sis. Missing you always. Thinking of you always.
Loving you always."
"Dearest Wendy, My Beloved Sister,
It's been a month and today we presented you to your final resting place.
May you rest in beautiful peace. I think of you everyday and miss you very much. I love you and only wish that you are still here with us.
I know that you will be watching and protecting us from where you are.
Be free and know that you are forever alive in our hearts."
"Its always painful to lose a loved one, and I am so sorry the family and friends of Wendy are going through a difficult time, so I hope you will find comfort in these words in the bible at 1 Peter 5:7 where it mentions while you throw ALL your anxieties on him because he cares for you.
My deepest condolences.
I know Danny and I don't know you well (only through Steve on that fateful day last winter). But we are truly stricken by your tragedy. We pray for you and your daughters. We are so sorry for your loss."
"Dear Matt, Chloe and Kylie,
Though it rained today as we laid Wendy in her final resting place, it did not dampen our spirits and love that we have for our dear friend Wendy. Take each day one day at a time...there will be good days and challenging days but know that your friends and family will be with you every step of the way. Wendy's legacy lives in us all and we are all better people to have had her in our lives. Wendy lives in Chloe and Kylie as they have her warm smile, strength (a force to be wreckened with when they captain their own women's dragonboat team like their mom!), and love for all. We will all be here for all of you and only a car ride or phone call away...we are in this together...xoxoxo an, laura and anabelle"
May you be comforted by the outpouring of love surrounding you today and tomorrow.
Your beautiful wife, Wendy, will remain in our hearts forever."
Words cannot describe how it pains me so deeply to see you go
A piece of me is lost without you
As a big sister, you watched over me & took me under your wing
Growing up, we didn’t have much except each other
You made sure I did not become spoiled as the youngest of us 4 sisters
You were extremely tough and never allowed me to feel entitled
You always stood your ground and made it known who was boss
You instilled in me strength and independence
I am who I am because of you
But underneath this tough veneer, belied a big softie with a huge heart
Your toughness little by little melted away when you had children
You became more nurturing and playful and lived life with no boundaries
You always cared so much for everyone around you
You were the loudest and most unfiltered among us four
You brought levity to situations when times needed laughter
I will miss you, big sis, forever and ever....
Your spirit surrounds me always,
Loving you for all eternity,
I couldn't bring myself to write to you until today. Tomorrow is your wake, I am still in shock that you have left us so suddenly. It was only exactly 2 weeks ago that we had a play date, you played with the kids. You organized the bookcase for me in the basement. We were gossiping about a Dragon Boat girl that was sharing intimate things with you. We had sushi together for dinner. Rest in peace knowing that we will take good care of Matt, Chloe and Kylie for you. Wherever you are, Heaven or whatver the afterlife place, there must be in need of strong man and woman to help fighting its battles, thats why they took Bill and you. You were so strong. Violet and Connor miss you. We will always remember you. I will make sure that Chloe and Kylie never forget you.
Matt, you are like a brother to me, I want you to feel free to come to me if you ever need anything.
I cannot begin to describe how heavy our hearts our with your sudden loss. You have touched our lives for so many years and have been such a presence in our children's lives. You were quick with a kind word and gift for everyone. The efforts that were made for birthdays, baby showers and wedding will be missed. No one was this irreplaceable. Countless vacations and playdates. Dragon boat races and birthday parties. Your kindness will be remembered through your husband and your daughters. Their lives, as well as our will never be the same. You were unquestionably family to us. We were watching our children grow up together and were so happy that they were as good as friends as we all were. We will look after your girls with Matt, knowing that you are smiling upon us all. The passing of such a young mother leaves the greatest kind of emptiness. We love you Wendy."
"My Dearest Sister Wendy,
I really miss you. My heart is aching. It's really hard to put down in words the sorrow I'm feeling. I can't believe you are not here with us. I know you are watching over us with father, grandpa & grandma and of course, our first cat, Lucky. I will always be thinking of you and all the fun times we had together. This year, we were supposed to go apple picking and to the Long Island Fire Prevention Day fair (to get our yummy hot dogs & ice-cream and fire engine ride!). You were always the outgoing and loud one. You were not afraid of anything. You were so creative. You worked really hard on your art projects for school and I remember you got really mad at us for watching TV while you were working on your artist desk. You have grown up to be a beautiful, wonderful, loving wife and mother.
Thank you for being my sister and a for being a cool and awesome aunt.
Thank you for just being beautiful you!
I'll always love you. You're in my heart, always.
Big Sis Nancy"
We are so sorry for your loss. May the beautiful memories of Wendy bring you some comfort during this difficult time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Chloe, and Kylie.
Eve and Dell Mangibin"
When I met you 16 years ago at MAD DB club, we're the first NY women national team to England/Notthingham, during the fit test, you performed 10-15 reps strict pull up without assits, I was so inspired by your performanced and your sportmentship to the team. Wendy, may you R.I.P...may an Angels look after you and your love of Matt, Chloe and Kylie. We will missed you dearly........
In deepest sympathy"
"My condolences go out to the family of Wendy Jean Wong. From reading about Wendy, I can tell she was truly loved and will be missed dearly by family and friends. It is very painful to lose a wife, mother, sister and friend in death. It is very comforting to know that our Creator understands our grief. Not only does he understand our grief, he long to use his almighty power to restore life to the dead. Here is a question Job asked. At Job 14:14,15. If a man dies, can he live again? I will wait all the days of my compulsory service until my relief comes. You will call, and I will answer you. You will long for the work of your hands. In this scripture when Job is speaking of his relief to come, he is speaking of a resurrection from the dead. There is scriptures in the Bible about the resurrection hope. John 5:28,29 that says that there is going to be a resurrection of our dear loved ones. So we can be able to be with our dear loved ones again. I hope these scriptures will be comforting to you as they are to me. If you would like to know more about the hope of the resurrection, or have any other questions that you would like answers to. Go to the website: www.jw.org
Again my deepest condolences go out to the family."
Even I don't know you but I am touched by the tribute that your family and your friend leave for you. May you rest in peace!
Love, Weinstock family!"
"A loving mother and wife, may you rest in peace. You were always the ambassador to life experiences-- thank you for the honest truth and being open about what you've seen. We will try our best to show your girls the world and will remind them of your unconditional love."
"Wendy: Although dragon boat and babies have kept me away from NY for quite some time now, I have never forgotten the great times I had with you and Matt in NY. Thank you for always welcoming us Canadians with open arms and a warm smile. I will always remember being in awe of your athleticism, focus and leadership. Rest in peace Wendy, you will be missed dearly."
"Hi Matt, Chloe, Katlie - I am so very sorry for your loss. I raced with your Mom in a dragon boat. She was a cool teammate. From the photos, I can see she was a cool and loving MOM too. I will miss her too."
i don't really know what to say or write. All i can say at this moment is that, we lost a bright spirit who had so much to give. We lost not just your wife, but a mother, a daughter, a friend and a sister to us all.
i hope, in time all the good and loving memories will comfort you and your family.
my heart goes out to you."
I will always remember the way you took care of me when we were in London and I used the wrong eye drops.
I will always remember the day Kylie's water broke and I was terrified and you were not.
I will always remember how much you like Poppey's and Charlyes - maybe those were the only choices we had but you enjoyed them.
You made the best of everything even when you were down.
I will miss you terribly and my heart aches for your beautiful girls, and caring husband.
I hope you are in a better place where the world is as you pictured it in your artwork - light, full of blooms, and happy."
So very, sorry for your loss and I'm absolutely speechless at this moment. You and your family are in our prayers. Our deepest condolences to you and the girls..."
I've been struggling what to write to you and Wendy these past few days since Susie told me.
Wendy has been in my life exactly as long as Susie and as such been like a sister to me, especially Susie.
She'd tease me all the time about how I followed Susie when we first met just as I would tease her when she was all eyes for you. When you first appeared to the dragon boat meets you can see her glow every time you both were together. It was Wendy & Matt in the making. True love since the start :)
Over the years I've enjoyed Wendy's company on our early meets to row. She was always upbeat, caring, thoughtful, loving, strong and striving to be the best she can be. Never spoke badly of anyone and would always encouraged others to aim high.
We have not seen each other over the last few years which saddens me deeply because I would have loved to seen her with you and the girls. I am extremely saddened she has left us so soon and look forward to catching up with her in the next life.
My deepest condolences to you, Chloe, Kylie and family.
I look forward to seeing you and the girls shortly to celebrate the life of our beloved Wendy

"Wendy and my sister Carol have known each other since JHS. They have been great friends being there for each other thru life's ups and downs. I have seen my sister's friends come and go but their friendship stood the test of time. I did not have the pleasure to truly get to know Wendy in person but the adventures they went thru together were fun, crazy and hilarious enough for me to know my sister and Wendy were truly great buds. I have come to know Wendy as an adventurous, courageous, dedicated, caring and loving woman. She has left us way too soon and unexpected. But I am grateful for her presence while she was here because she has left an impact on the lives she has touched. It is comforting to know that true friendships are hard to come by but they do exist. She will be greatly missed but forever be in our hearts. My deepest sympathies to Matt, Chloe, Kylie and families."
I'm really shocked, saddened, and speechless to hear the sweetest Wendy had left us and this world so soon. So many sad news came within these couple years among our dragon boat friends and it's really upsetting. These were the young, active and most athletic friends that i knew. Why? How???? So much good memories we had together at "Rebels" and the day that you both met that i will never forget. So special, precious and there is no words that I can describe about our sweet Wendy. She was an amazing, truly remarkable person. Even though our friendship had drifted apart for so many years, but you both are always in my heart and mind. Wendy, with your graceful and beautiful heart and mind, you will be missed so dearly.
Matt, stay strong and don't forget that we are all here for you if you ever need a shoulder to cry on. Take care Matt, Chloe and Kylie.
With deepest condolences to you and family.
Cindy & family"
"Wendy Wong- we had been working together for a short 1 year, eventho its so short she made it so beautiful, fun, meaningful, and very much memorable. She was a great person with an amazing personality, tough and strong yet so caring and loving. She was very positive, never got angry, never took offense and always throw the best jokes. She always made everyone laughing so hard at our little corner. She made life at work so much easier to deal with. She always had so much to give. The effort she made to connect and bring people together was phenomenal. In such a short time i learnt so many valueable life lessons through you, Wendy Wong. Thank you for being part of mylife. I feel blessed to have known such a good person. I miss you alot.
Much love to the the family she left behind, her husband, daughters, mother and sisters- we always heard amazing stories about you. Matt, Chloe & Kylie - your wife and your mother was really truly a wonderful woman. You are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
God bless her beautiful soul, Rest in Peace Wendy."
"Wendy is the best person I ever met. She has a great heart always warm up people around her. Wendy is a remarkable woman, a great wife and mom. I will miss her forever. She always told me that family is the most important no matter what and taught me how to be a better mom. I believe her spirit will always be here with her family and guard two little kids. Matt, I am so sorry for this bad new. But I believe Wendy doesn't want to see your sadness. She will want you to move on and live well with the kids. She will always live in our hearts."
"I will always remember Wendy as kind and so easy to be around. Never judging, just accepting you for who you were. Always encouraging. Matt, I use to run into Wendy around where we worked on 32nd Street and I remember she always had encouraging words for me when I use to complain about my work situation. Seeing a familiar, understanding face during a tough work week was such a rare treat. I am truly saddened by her passing. She will be so missed. My family and I keep you and yours in our prayers."
"Matt, Chloe and Kylie
We are very sorry to hear about the loss of your wife, life long partner, Wendy. We can’t begin to imagine what you are feeling.
Please accept our deepest heartfelt condolences to you and your family. Your family is surrounded by the love of many.
My family extends to you our deepest sympathies,
Jimmy and Katie”"
"Wendy was an amazing person who always brought a smile to my face. A Happy positive soul who loved her Family dearly."
My deepest condolences to you and your family."
So completely shocked and saddened to hear about this. You and the girls are in our thoughts. Wendy's generous and lovely smile will be missed by all."
"Dear Matt, My deepest condolences to you and your loved ones. Sending you and your family positive thoughts and healing energy. RIP Wendy."
I am so sorry for your loss. This is completely shocking and stunning news. Find solace and strength through your memories together. Chloe and Kylie will live vicariously through you in remembering Wendy. Wendy left us too soon.
I am sad and speechless."
I did not know you that well though I counted you as a dear childhood friend and 'family' because we shared the same stomping grounds (Chinatown, elementary and JHS) and mutual friends. I remember you as a confident, strong individual (even as a child) with amazing artistic abilities. I also admire your physical abilities knowing your passion in the dragon boat races. It is with heavy heart that I hear of this news. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends. God be with you and rest in peace, Wendy.
"Chloe and Kylie,
We were deeply saddened to hear of your mommy's passing. It was a shock to all of us.
I think that the loss of one's mother is by far the saddest event of anyone's lifetime. We join in with everyone who knew your mom in wishing you both peace and comfort as you two face this very sad time. Our thoughts and prayers are with you both and your wonderful family.
Tru and Pele"
"REST in GODS ARMS FOREVER. Amen"
"So very sorry for your loss.
Wendy , REST in the ARMS of God FORGIVE. Amen"
"We are so sorry to hear of Wendy's passing and we want to express our most sincere sympathies to her family during this difficult time from the management team here at Tzumi Electronics. Although, Wendy was not with us for long she was a highly valuable and respected member of our team at that time.
Please accept our sincere condolences for her family. Wendy was a remarkable woman and everyone at Tzumi is better for having known her. For those of us that had the privilege of calling her "friend" outside of work, we were humbled by her kindness and compassion to everyone around her.
She will be greatly missed and everyone here is saddened by her death. Know that our thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends during this difficult time.
With sincere sympathy,
The Staff at Tzumi Electronics."
"Our Beloved Wendy...we will remember your strength, smiles, warmth, selflessness, love you had for family, friends and life. We go back to dragonboat days and who knew then that the guys we were both dating at that time would be our future husbands and father to our beautiful children. and who knew the friendships we developed in those days would be best friends we have today in our lives and be the extended FAMILY that we would lean on through thick and thin and good and difficult times...Take comfort that our "dragonboat" family will watch over Matt, Chloe and Kylie as they have all watched over us. Give a big hug to Bill for all of us when you meet up in the big blue skies, stick with Bill...he'll show you the ropes as that is what he is best at and the best deals in town :) We love and miss you my dear friend..we will shed many tears but also crack a smile to remember the fond memories we have of you. xoxoxo an, laura and anabelle""
In the short time we knew each other you made sure you went above and beyond to make me feel welcomed. You were very sweet and kind and I will never forget that. You will forever have a special place in my heart."
A butterfly captures our hearts
from the moment they appear.
They are vibrant and graceful
as their presence lifts our spirits.
Gone much too soon,
Wendy you will never be forgotten.
Matt,Chloe and Kylie, so very sorry for your loss. My deepest condolences.
Grace & Don"
"I still have a hard time believing that we won't be having our second annual dragon boat family day at CT Science Center. I was just thinking of all the fun (and chaotic) time we had with 6 children. You were strong, energetic, and kind. I will forever be sadden that I won't have a chance to get to know you better."
My wife Kathy and I are so sorry for your loss. We will say a payer for you, your lovely family and Wendy.
"I'm stunned and saddened by this news. My heart goes out to her family and close ones, especially the young ones.
I remember the day Wendy sold me on joining the Dragon Boat team. She said it could be a light and recreational sport...next thing I knew I was living and breathing "dragon boat" for a while. Through my travels with the team, I was exposed to the SF Bay area, where I choose to live now.
She was a champion to the females, newbies, and underdogs while shining among the strongest. Loyal, full of strength and encouragement, never short of friendly smiles. Wendy will forever be remembered and loved.
Rest in peace, dear Wendy. We shall miss you."
So sorry to hear this, I will pass the news on to the Philly folks you paddled with and on their behalf wish you and your children strength in this trying time."
My deepest condolences to you and your family on your lost. Even though I didn't know Wendy personally, her presence on the docks was always friendly and intimidating at the same time. Those who didn't know her feared her until they came to know and love her for the sweet person she was. She will be missed."
I remember running by the dock early in the morning and you would always be the one female running towards me on your finishing lap. As one of the older girls who was loyal to the team, you were a true role model who pushed me to fight the boys for a spot on the boat.
Thank you for being such a strong female presence for all us young girls.
My condolences to Matt and the girls."
"I'm completely stunned. Wendy was always a sweet girl. Matt, my condolences to this tragic loss and may you always have the strength and will to raise your children. I'm so sorry, complete loss of words."
"My Dearest Wendy,
I hope you will know....
No amount of tears can express how deeply I miss you. No amount of words can describe the lost I feel or the sadness that cloaks me. I never got to tell you I was coming home to spend time lost to everyday monotony. You were the glue that kept our friendship together even when I am 5,000 miles away. I never forget the hours we spent talking about anything to everything. We were together when we met our husband, when you got pregnant, when you became a mother twice and when I joined the Army. We were the three musketeers; you, Carol and I. Crazy as we were we supported each other. I will miss the care packages you sent me every Christmas. It always placed a smile on my face of the crazy but thoughtful items you selected. A reminder of how creative and talented you were. I lost someone very dear and special in her own way. I lost a dear friend. Wendy, I love and miss you so much.
"You left this world without saying good-bye. Even if I don't see you, I will always remember the smiles and laughter we shared. All I have are memories and pictures of our childhood. A reminder of how we once were and how beautiful you've become. It is hard to forget someone who gave so much for me to remember. I love you from the bottom of my heart. I look forward to your smile again."
We will remember you always... Love, Susie Ng and Gil Diaz."
"Oh Wendy Wendy, I am speechless..."
Today has been a great lost to all of us, especially for my sister Susie. You were her childhood friend, her best friend, and a very dear friend. You left this world too soon. You, Susie and Carol were the three musketeers. You guys did almost everything together. No words can describe the lost we have today. Life is too precious and unpredictable. We thank you for every moments we had with you. You are our shining star. We will miss you dearly and will always treasure you in our hearts.
Our love, Samantha and Family"
"Dear Auntie Wendy,
We truly miss you. We wished you could've stayed with us longer. Thank you for making us laugh, giving us the best presents, and being the greatest aunt in the world. This happened too sudden and unexpectedly. Life is so unfair and in our minds we keep asking the questions "why, what, how?!" You were so active, talented, caring, hardworking, outgoing, and loving. Even though you are not here physically, memories will never be forgotten. Your name will always be engraved in our hearts. Rest in peace and we love you <3
Emilee and Hailee"
