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.
