    Wendell will be missed by us. He always had a greeting for us and was a friendly neighbor. I’ll always rememeber him as the guy with the hat collection, card player and the one who gave treats to our dog. Thanks for the memories.

    Dear Family of Wendell, I’ve only known Wendell about 1 year or so. I met him playing cribbage at the Full Moon. In that year I came to know and respect him as a friend and fellow cribbage player. I enjoyed playing cards with him, listening to his jokes and just chating with him in general. Cribbage night just wasn’t the same when Wendell couldn’t be there. He taught me alot about playing the game of cribbage and about just enjoying life getting out and being with others. I could tell that Wendell really enjoyed these nights out with us. I will miss Wendell very much. I am thankful that I was priviledged to know him and that the memories of him will be with me forever. My thoughts and prayers are with you, his family, and the hope for the strength you will need in the hard days ahead without your beloved Wendell. Sincerely, Violet Bibeau
