This weekend my friends and neighbors have been mourning the loss of a friend. Wendy Whitehead, a 39 year old mother of two girls ages 9 & 6 was killed by a foul ball at a baseball game. We have a city baseball team the Colts. Wendy and her husband had just gotten to the game and had been there about 15 minutes. A foul ball came across the stands at the 3rd base line and struck Wendy in the head. She was declared brain dead at the hospital. Those close to her, her family, the spectators at the game, the players, the town, are all shaken by this.
Wendy was the president of our parent organization at the elementary school, this past year. She is active in fund raisers for various organizations. She was a fun out going person.
She was an organ donor. It is nice to know that many families will be touched by her death.
So. Remember to sign that organ donor card. Hug your loved ones and remember to enjoy every day, every moment.
