Our family didn’t know you very even though we lived next to each other for several years but anyone who met you during those times knew how much you loved and missed your wife. I’m happy that you’re with her again and I hope you can find some time to go fishing in Jonathan Creek like I know you liked to do!

Uncle Wayne, you were such a joy to talk with and I will miss your smiling face, I remember when you passed through Pittsburgh, you called, just to say hello. You never forgot Glorine's girls, and we will never forget you. We will all miss you. I love you.
