Jeanne and Family, So sorry for Wayne's passing. He was so happy when he was working at the church. I will miss that! He survived the clogged drains and water back up two years ago at alumni, but turned around and came back the next year to be in charge of washing dishes again! I always wished I could have seen one of your skiing shows. My sympathies.

Jeanne, Wayne was a great friend! I have many great memories of our adventures when we were young men in Earlville! Wayne was one of the toughest people I have ever met. Not big in size but a tremendous heart. He will be missed by everyone he every met!

Jeanne, I am so sorry to learn of Wayne's passing. Over the years, the memory of Wayne's speech at our BMT Reunion comes to mind and always brings me to laughter. I have admired you both for your love of life and perserverence through a rocky path. I have also admired and enjoyed that brilliant wit that resided within Wayne. I am sending you my thoughts and prayers.
