Kendall's Memorial Service
I attended Kendal's service yesterday. The church was full (150-200 folks), and it was a nice service. It was clear from the many comments I heard that he was deeply loved and respected and will be sorely missed by many people. I spoke with Jean briefly, she said that the Bates held a special place in his heart.
