Memorial Service for Kevin Wendall aka FA-Q on January 2, 2011 in Lower East Side

The Memorial Service for Kevin Wendall aka FA-Q is set for January 2, 2010, from 4-7pm. Below is the personal letter from Angela, the finance who stood by Kevin throughout his illness with such love and dedication.

Dearest Friends and Family

As some of you may already know, Kevin Wendall aka FA-Q, passed away on Nov 15th. For surgery that was supposed to bring him home in 3 days, he spent 2+ years recovering from complications after the procedure. I want to thank everyone for all the phone calls, emails and messages of support throughout these last few years. For reasons I can’t understand, it comforts me to know that the man who means everything to me, also means something to you. With the help of Toyo, Dennis and Kazuko, I will be putting together a memorial for Kevin, to be held on Sunday Jan. 2, 2011 from 4pm-7pm. Please come and share your stories or pictures of him to put on the wall. We could all use a good laugh, and Kevin was always the first to make that happen, either by telling nonsensical stories or by the goofy faces he loved to make.
