We just wanted you to know we are thinking of you at this time. We were very fond of Wendell for the short time we were around him. He had a love for the things he was interested in, very intelligent and surely did love his cats. He will be missed.

Wendell was only a small boy the last I saw him, but I have fond memories of the many times I visited the home of his parents. I am so saddened to see that he is now gone on before us. R.I.P. Wendell

So sorry for your loss. I know what it is to lose a brother and it never seems to be enough time to share him on this earth no matter what the age. Give comfort to know he is now with Jesus in heaven.

I am greatly sorry for your loss. Wendell was one of the most genuine, honest, intelligent, willing to lend a hand, person I've ever had the pleasure to know. Wendell was my best friend for 18 years. He was always there whenever I needed him. I considered Wendell part of my family; he was my big brother. I will miss him dearly and I will never forget him. I love you Wendell.
