Our deepest sympathy for the passing of our dear friend and neighbor. Many prayers and loving thoughts to his entire family.
Wendell was always a kind and caring person. We will forever remember the many conversations we had over the fence while Wendell was busy working in his garden. I can see Wendell tending the gardens in Heaven ready to have company come by and share a memory of love and friendship.
Peace be with you all!
In Christian Love,
Mr. & Mrs. Michael Tidrow
