    Dear Jill:

    Jim and I just learned of Wendell’s passing late yesterday afternoon. Such sad news. We saw Wendell several month’s ago at Honey’s having a burger. We chatted about old times. Jim always enjoyed his company whether riding motorcycles or helping the two of you make sausage. May God’s promises bring you peace and comfort until that day when you are reunited in God’s heavenly kingdom.

    With deepest sympathy,

    Jim and Marilyn Ault

    My sister, my friend, Jill there are no words. But I want you to know how much you are loved. You, Wendell and the kids. To know y’all is to love you. I’m praying for you and wishing I could take all the hurt away from all of you. Sadly it doesn’t work that way. I know you are stronger than you know and that will be tested in the days to come. But you have y’alls kids and family to help you get through any storm coming. This storm came, the damage is done but there will be a new tomorrow. Keep Wendell’s memory alive through all the stories you will share in the days, weeks and years to come. I know I said there are no words, guess I got carried away as usual. I love you my dear, sweet, beautiful friend. Love to all of you.
