  1. My condolences to the family. Just saw him about a month ago and we were comparing good times in the Aurora/Plainfield area. He will be missed but he is back with his love.

  2. My most sincere sympathies go out to the Voss family. I am sure Wendell is up in Heaven making hay with my grandfather. I will forever have fond memories of Wendell.
