View Full Version : Very dear friend in the business...

A very dear friend on mine, Wendell Burke, died in Detroit Receiving Hospital last night. He had been there - in and out of ICU - after suffering a severe stroke about 2 months ago.

Wendell fought bravely to cling to life, but in the end the damage done was just too great.

Last October, I finished a project for Wendell that he and I (and a number of other folks) were involved in after a year long effort. Wendell had a beautiful voice, and the project we undertook together was a music video that he hoped would help launch his band's music career.

Sadly, a great musician, talented singer, songwriter, news photographer, editor and friend never saw his dream realized. He was only 49 years old.

So to say farewell, I thought I would share his video here. Wendell is the big guy with the Detroit Tigers hat on.

Farewell, Wendell. Here's to you.
