    In my search to replace my scuba certification card, I found this notice. I extend to you my deepest condolences however delayed they may be. Wendell was my diving instructor through A&C Diving almost 40 yrs ago. He changed my life in a very good way. I vividly remember his classroom instruction; how he taught us with passion and conviction to the sport of diving. He instructed me to instructor level and I have enjoyed a full life of diving around the world since, teaching others as he taught me. At that time, I was working as an engineer and we had great conversation.
    I have lost family in the recent years. I hope that one of these days when you think of Wendell you will smile instead of shedding a tear.
