Dear Family,

I am sad to hear of Wendell’s passing. We shared many good times together living in Colorado! I’m sure you remember as well our visits to Copper Mountain and staying in a condo which Eileen always got for us! It was such fun having family together, laughters, and even the wedding which I played for at the church in Copper!
God Bless You, Grant you His Peace and keep you in the palm of His hands.
