We're told Pat and Vanna each said some kind words about the 78-year-old TV veteran -- and gave an intro to a montage honoring their friend as well ... and it's all set to air during Friday's episode.

FYI -- O'Donnell worked on "Wheel" for 28 years.

Wilson? Try Charlie O'Donnell. Nice post but it certainly missed the mark with the wrong name in it. RIP Charlie! You will be missed everywhere but here at TMZ.

Wilson was the name of the neighbour of Tool Time's Tim Taylor from the show ' Home Improvement '. Earl Hindman, sadly is gone too, another great voice.

Charlie, tell us who is next to enter Heaven....

While I remember Pat Sajak as a weatherman at Nashville's WSM-TV- located only a few miles from where I live- but those of us who grew up in the Stone Age don't associate Charlie O'Donnell with anyone other than **** Clark.

American Bandstand was never the same after Charlie left.

R.I.P.
