    So sorry to hear of Wendell’s passing. He was one of my closest friends in high school and I always looked forward to visiting with him when we got together at our class reunions at Rufus Ogden’s. We were also at FSU at the same time where we got together from time to time. Like others in our Columbia High School Class of 1960, I will miss him greatly.

    Wendell was one of the very first guys I met in Lake City about 1951 or 52. I will never forget him.
