When Wendy Shepherd, Internet Goddess and all-around Baddass, started collecting “Love Letters” for our Boondock Boys, we thought it was a fabulous idea. So fabulous, in fact, that we decided to steal it (They do say that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!) If anyone in the Boondock Saints family deserves some love, it’s Mrs. Shepherd. She works her tail off day and night, updating us on our favorite actors as well as other goings on in the entertainment world. Wendy, we love you. Don’t believe us? Well here’s some proof. Please enjoy this small sampling of lovin’, Boondock Bettie style (with a little help from a couple of Saints.)

Wendy, you are such a determined and amazing woman. All your hard work is astounding to see! The boys love you, we love you, and you have a terrific famjam to support you. Much Love! ♥ Brittney, @d_valleyqueen

Wendy, thank you so much for being so awesome, supportive, warm and welcoming!  You’re such a hard worker, but you still take time to chat and answer questions all while continuing to kick ass at what you do! I love getting your updates on the entertainment side just as much as I love hearing about your martial arts progress! Go Wendy! We love ya! – Evita, @VeganVita

Wendy, you’re the glue, girl.  You’re our in, our secret link.  The Betties appreciate and love you!  You’re the best!  -@Cerridwen7

Thank you Wendy, for all the fabulous work you do and for always being so good to us Betties.  We love you!  - Andrea, @drea0208

I can’t say this often enough: YOU ROCK!
It’s so good to know you out there spreading the word about everything our boys do or plan to do! You are always that passionate and lovely and friendly.
It’s a pleasure and an honor to know you, and you know that you can always count on me, whenever you need help or support! Keep up that fantastic work and thank you for just everything! – Kimmy, @KimmyTailor

I think Wendy is absolutely phenomenal!! She’s been such a huge help to me with the Boondock Boys. She got me connected to get into the Boston St. Patty’s day party because it was gonna cost too much with my transportation from NY and hotel and such, plus she let me ask Clifton a question about his music video debut. I love how she includes the fans in everything and really makes me feel a part of the whole BDS family, i appreciate it sooo much! She’s amazing and I’m very thankful to have her as a friend online, and hope she realizes how truly special she really is :) -Jenn, @sgnmbr1fan4life

Nearly four years ago, I joined a forum and met (online only) a web-mistress by the name of Wendy Shepherd. She weaves her inter web magic with determination and passion … from her I have learned a great deal. She answers our questions, considers suggestions and welcomes discussions. Today I say my thanks to Wendy … for letting us be a part of it all … and for all that she does. Thanks Wendy! Warmest Regards -Mireille Miskulin, @MireilleM

Dearest Wendy,
You are the unsung hero behind the boys that we love.  Your hard work over the many years has resulted in some fabulous web designs and your constant communication via Twitter, Facebook, emails, etc. makes it so easy to remain a die hard fan!  You should know that because I was obsessed with Sean Patrick Flanery, I’ve been aware of your name since I was in college, 1996-2000, and now I’m a huge fan of yours as well!  I wish you nothing but success in ALL that you do, from website-work to kick-ass karate.  Thank you again for being awesome!
All my love- Crissie M, @boondock_saint

Hi Wendy!
The love letters for the boys was such a good idea but then again if it wasn’t for you, we would have no clue what’s going on with our boys. I just wanted to say thank you for all your hard work, you are amazing! You run like 50 billion Twitter/ Facebook pages/websites, etc., you’re a wonderful wife, mom and friend, you do it all! You really are the hardest working woman on the internet. You definitely earned some chocolate lol! Love ya! -Mandy, @Mandy302

Wendy is a breath of fresh air. She is a leaf on the wind. She is the cats flannel pajamas wrapped in a snuggie. I feel truly blessed to know her. She has a keen insight and is observant, but does not judge. She also juggles chainsaws. Okay, that last part wasn’t true, but the other stuff totally was. - Ali,  @Cranialspasm

Wendy is awesome! Because of Wendy, the boys fan base has increased tremendously! We love you Wendy! Sincerely-  Christine F, @LadyNavyMariah

Hi Wendy,

Just want to say thank you for all the things you do for the Boys and letting us know of their new projects. You’re awesome! -Linda S from Sweden, @lindasilja

Wendy,
You are the best ever!!! I love how you keep the Betties informed on things that are going on with the guys and all the hard work you do…keep up the awesomeness!!! ::super hugs:: WE LOVE YOU!!!
Lots-o-love,
Mary, @SpyVsSpyChic

Dear Mis.Wendy Shepherd

Thank you very much for opening the Walking Dead site and giving us
the chance to upload comments to the TV station.

This show is already in the news in Japan, too. It will be on air in
November here.  ”The Walking Dead” is a very unique TV series which
shows wars and battles between human beings and zombies.  It’s
thrilling enough but the news that Mr. Norman Reedus plays one of the
characters in this series makes me more excited.

Without you, I would have not had a way to tell how I’m happy with
this series and the cast to the TV station.  Thank you very much.

Aside from this series, you’ve provided us so much exciting and
exhilarating information about the Boondock Saints and the casts.  As
Mr. Sean Patrick Flannery said, you are “the internet goddess”.

Again, thank you very much. I hope you’ll have a nice day. -@YoosekuStu

Wendy,
I just wanted to say thank you for all you do.  You juggle multiple websites, being a wife, mom and teacher to 3 boys and somehow find the time to have a personal relationship with so many of the Betties.  I especially appreciate you bringing us closer to our favorite Saints.  Your hard work and dedication doesn’t go unnoticed. Whether it’s about being a mom, LOST, or our sometimes crazy families, I always enjoy our conversations!
Much Love- Jennifer M, @JenniferM1702

My dearest Wendy,

What more can I say? You are such a sweet and humble person. You have brought in such awesome things into the lives of many Betties and given opportunities that many of us would never have had were it not for you. I personally thank you for the exposure on Officially Plugged In and I am happy to promote such talent as yourself. I hope all your dreams come true and consider you a special part of my and other Bettie’s lives.

In a nut shell, we effin love ya lady! Xoxo -@Feanix

Dear Wendy,

How do I count the ways? One one-thousand, two one-thousand, three one-thousand, four one-thousand, five one-thousand! As you can see, I love you! Haha! Well actually, the Betties love you! You are amazing at what you do. The awesome things you do for the boys, I’m sure they are beyond grateful. It’s clear why Sean always raves about you! You kick butt! Literally, great job with the karate! =)

MUCH LOVE!!!!!!!

WENDY SHEPHERD FOR THE WIN!!!

Xoxo -Danielle Kalilec, @daniellerenee91

Hi Wendy, Just wanted to add a big, heart-felt thank you for all you’ve done for The Boys and for their fans. I don’t know how you do it – you’re a busy lady with a great family – yet you always find time to help us out and answer our questions :) Thank you so very much!! -Jane B

Dear Wendy,

You were one of the first people I followed on Twitter. The information you give regarding our Boondock Boys has been so very helpful. It’s been a pleasure getting to know you online and I can only hope that the Betties have the opportunity to meet you in person one day.  We love love love you and appreciate everything you do for us and for the Boys. Thanks for being you! Much Love- Casey, @CaseyCcC

Wendy, I want to thank you for always keeping myself along with many others informed on all the projects of actors and other talents that I think are awesome. Your talent shines bright in all of the pages you have running. So many, that I know I cannot list them all! You’re an internet guru, but a Super Karate-kicking Mom first and foremost, and that is something to be admired. Thanks for being awesome and for all the awesome stuff you do. Much Love- Caitlin, @Caitlintake2

What can one say about Superwoman? She’s got a tight handle on things, must have about fifty hands to multitask the way she does, and she is STILL super-sweet to the multitude of people who vie for her attention day in and day out! All this on top of taking care of a family! Wendy, you are the ultimate Superwoman, and we LOVE YOU! ♥ -Missy C, @VentrueBlood

Dear Wendy, Thank you for all you do for us!  You keep us connected and informed.  You help our friends be all they can be!!!  You always answer us and listen to us.  You fill the gap in our bridges.  Thank you for being awesome, mostly, thank you for being a friend.

Love,

Catherine and Wayne, @mom2gracenlinc and @dabgcat

Wendy, you are made of amazingness! You are the queen of multitasking and such a sweet person. I’m so glad I’ve found you via twitter. All of your posts are smile worthy no matter what they’re about.  - @CrashDisaster

Wendy Shepherd is, in fact, superhuman; a goddess of amazingness if you will. I feel that she, while being an awesome mom to her sons, she is dedicated to Official Plugged In and anyone associated with it. A down-to-earth woman like her deserves so much praise. Wendy Shepherd is a class act for sure. :) – @jessmadigan

Dear Wendy,
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate you reaching out and helping us show our boys some love and keeping us up to date! And I’d really like to thank you for being an awesome friend too! Wendy you freakin’ ROCK! WE LOVE YOU!
Love – Katie, Kit_Killer3OOO

Thanks Wendy for being the most awesome person and for helping us connect with others in a way we couldn’t have before. You rock! :) - @Jade_kadir

Dear Wendy,

Thanky you soooo much for going out of your way to help all of us get in touch with our favorite guys and pass on the messages of love that we send them…..  you are amazing…….  Knowing how busy you are with your family and still finding the time to moderate all our comments and questions and run all the websites is flipping awesome, so for all you do we love ya!  – Nikki, @Shaygurl22

Wendy,

You are an amazing classy bad ass lady. You do more for people then one could imagine. You should wake up to standing ovations every morning. I stand up in my uncomfortable desk chair and salute you. “Women can do everything; men can do the rest.”   We love you Wendy! – @anglhededhpster

Dear Wendy –  When I heard that a letter campaign was put together for you I was super excited!  A chance to let Wendy know how much we love and appreciate her and all she does?!? Heck yeah!!!  Sign me up! Upon joining Sean’s website forum I was really impressed with how well things were organized and run.  Little did I know that this was just the tip of your iceberg of awesome!  Joining Twitter fully opened my eyes to all the great stuff you do!  You were one of my first Twitter followers and I feel privileged that I have gotten the chance to know you! You wear so many hats: Promoter, Mom, Web Mistress, Wife, Organizer, Friend and that’s just to name a few! The list goes on from there!

Thank you for working hard to keep us posted on what’s going on entertainment wise – not only with the Boondock Family but with many other wonderful stars as well!  Thank you for sharing your talents with us and taking time out to make us feel special with personal notes and words of encouragement – even when you’re crazy busy! So in conclusion, THANK YOU, Wendy for being YOU!  With much love and admiration –Tara, @Tara_Jen

Thanks for everything you do and for being such an AWESOME person.  Never cease to amaze. :) –Shawna, @shawnamalone

Wendy Shepherd-a valuable part of my team
Wendy Shepherd-an actors secret weapon
Wendy Shepherd-not just an east coast secret anymore
Thank you Wendy for your insight and hard work!
