    Lorraine and Family,

    My deepest sympathy on the loss of Wendell. I worked with him over 30 years ago at Saint Ann’s hospital in Chicago.. In fact he sold me the bears season tickets that I gave my husband as a wedding present. I certainly remember him as as being a very kind gentleman . May the fond memories that you hold in your heart your heart get you through this difficult time.
