    Donna, i am so sorry I missed the obituary in the paper about Wayne.I remember seeing you and Wayne at Walmart this Spring and you said we should go to breakfast some morning and I wished we would have.I worked with Wayne and I know he was a good person to work with. I went fishing with Justin and Wayne so many years ago and tell Justin how sorry I am about the loss of his father and also Mark and the girls. Once again you got my condolences for your loss Donna. I hope the funeral home would pass this on to you.
