Always very sweet and very wonderful

Carmen Delgado

One of my memories of Dr. Wells ... I was divorced, and I was working at the Country Club before starting my business. I took care of Chancellor Wells at the Country Club. One time, I served his party, and Hoagy Carmichael was there, and two days later, I received a letter at my home from Chancellor Wells, with a $20 dollar tip and thanking me for the job that I did, also telling me that Hoagy Carmichael thought that my whiskey sour was the best he'd ever had. He was always very kind to me and through the years when I saw him and had words with him, he was always very sweet and very wonderful. He was a great man.
