Marty, we are so sorry to hear of Wayne's passing. He's been a good neighbor to us for so many years now. We are remembering how excited the kids used to get when the doorbell would ring and it would be him bringing us an armload of boxed cookies and treats from his work. He will be missed.

Dear Marty,
I was so surprised and saddened to hear of Wayne's passing. I know that he is with his Lord and Savior and free of all the limitations he suffered with on earth. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Sadly, I am unable to attend Wayne's memorial service as I am in Kingston for hip rehab. Know that I am with you in mind.

Here is a dear friend that will be sorely missed, but also whom we are happy to see join the Lord he loved so much. Our occasions together were too few, but they were a pleasure to share with Wayne. Sometimes lengthy discussions were enriched by Wayne's insight and quick sense of humor.
