I just leaned of Wendells passing. I am so sorry. I was fortunate to work as his secretary for years at his car lot. He loved thats job and made each day a fun experience for both Steve and I. I cherish those days in my life. He always had a smile and a good story to tell. My prayers are with you Glenna and Bucky.
