Deepest sympathy to the Wells Family & Friends. I am so sorry for your loss. Lorraine (and family), I remember coming to your house, so many times, as a youngster...we called your Dad "Uncle Leo" when my Dad worked at OPD, with him, and I loved him and your Mom, Luciene (sp),. I knew Everett & Cecil (growing up in the Rensselaer Falls area) - very nice men...and I remember when you were married. It's been years but your family has always been people I fondly remember, even though I was very young when we visited. Later in life, we lived near Leon and his family in Sanfordville - such a small world - (so our families met in life again). Sending love & prayers your way, and hoping your fond memories of Everett bring you comfort and joy as you remember him, and say your good-byes. May God add His Blessings to your family and give you strength. Love, Marion (Gutterson) Jones & Agnes (Gutterson) Barcomb

Such sad news! Everett was a very special man. I knew him from bridge in Madrid, Ogdensburg and Canadian games. I learned so much from him and he shared some stories when we rode to some of these games. Although his abilities at bridge were great, he was always a true gentleman, and humble. He will be missed. My condolences go out to each and every member of his family. Connie Murray-Lytle
