I always enjoyed being with Mrs Wentz. I remember while visiting Hawaii with Scott and Mr and Mrs Wentz, we went to the stadium where they play the Pro Bowl. The place was closed. If not for the Southern Charm of Mrs Wentz I don’t think the man would have ever let us in to see the place. I have fond memories of all the get togethers I was invited to whether it was their weekly fish restaurant outings or cookouts at the Wentz’s

My heart goes out to the whole Wentz family and especially Scott and Mr Wentz. May the Lord comfort you in this difficult time

Dear Howard and Family,
Please accept our deepest sympathy in the passing of Margaret. We so appreciated you both coming to Mom's (Nellie) 100th birthday celebration in Newton and attending her funeral. Margaret was such a wonderful lady and we know she will be missed. I hope you understand that we will not be able to attend the funeral on Saturday, but our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

Sincerely,

Wayne & Elaine Brown
