Doug and family, I knew Wynter through Aunt Barbara who loved her as did most anyone who met Wynter. I only recently learned Barbara passed away. You have had a lot of loss. I am still in NY and will try to contact Gary. I remember his being fond of Winter. Fran Gilmore

Dear Doug, Tammy and Rand, please accept my sincere sympathy on the loss of Wynter. She was a former student of mine at NSA. She was a quiet, thoughtful and lovely young woman. My heart goes out to her family. Her loss at such a young age is hard to accept. May your memories of her bring you comfort.

God himself will be with them. And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away. (Revelation 21:3,4)

Im so sorry to hear about this. My heart goes out to you guys. Wynter and I had been communicating over the last year or so and I loved reading all the beautiful insights she wrote. Its been many years since we have seen each other but I could tell she was a beautiful soul.

My heart is broken for the loss of your daughter and sister. I was Wynters hairdresser. She was a blessing to me each time I saw her or talked to her on the phone. She loved each of you so much and only spoke of her admiration for each of you. I am so blessed that God allowed our paths to cross. Praying for Gods peace and comfort in the days ahead.

Much love to my cousins Wynter taught me a lot over the past year. Despite disappointments and hard treatments, she was positive, often funny, deeply reflective and always faithful. She exhibited the marks of an angel on earth. She knew what was important: family, friends, love, music, beauty and gratitude. I personally am grateful to have had her as my cousin. She definitely is winging her way around heaven now.

Doug, Tammy, and Rand What a moving ceremony in memory of Wynter! I taught both Wynter and Rand and have fond memories of them at NSA. We grieve for Wynter's loss, but the ceremony is a tribute to Wynter's time on earth! We hope this closure brings comfort to the family. Kay and Don Goldberg
