    Wendae, our deepest condolences for the loss of your best friend, your partner in crime and the love of your life. There is nothing we can say that will ease your pain, we will leave you with the thought of Lenn on his hands and knees swinging a stick at Rusty to get him out from under our trailer lol and this the beginning of a wonderful friendship. We are here for whatever you need even if that is just to lend an ear to listen. May the stars shine brighter now that the Heavens have another golden star by their side, and may you find comfort in knowing that Lenn will always be by your side until your paths cross yet again. We love you all <3

    My dear little sister. I can find no words to tell you how much I would love to take your pain away. Elmer and I loved Lenn very much and always called him our favorite brother-in-law and he often said he felt the same way about us. It was way too early for him to go, but he is now in a better place and is no longer suffering. We love you very much and our door is always open for you and you can always phone us too except, well maybe not after 9:00 P.M.
    If you need some baking please let me know and I will find some somewhere for you. LOL
    Many hugs and love to you everyday of the week will be there for you.

    Dear Wendae,
    I am so sorry for the loss of your best friend and the love off your life. Even though I only got to know both you and Lenn, the year we moved back to Eagle lake, I’ll always remember him as full of life and so helpful to us especially when we needed it most. Many nails, struck by his hands, are in our deck and will always know he is with us still. May he rest in peace.
    Love Shirley
