So very sorry to hear of Wavey’s passing.. As I have shared with many, she was a fellow fighter and one of my best cheerleaders.

An example that I looked up to and aim to continue to do so. My deepest condolences to her family and friends and I hope you find peace and comfort in the loving memories that you all share of her.

My heartfelt condolences go out to Sharissa, the Elms and Best families and Karl. Wavey and I worked together for many years at CRA, most often in the same department and usually sitting next to one another. We took breaks together and had lunch together almost every day. She was funny, kind and a great friend. Years ago another CRA employee saw us together in the building and said “You must be sisters”. We thought it was hilarious because the only similarities between us that we could come up with was that we both had blonde hair but from that moment on, we always joked about being sisters. Rest in peace “Sis”.
