My thoughts are with the family. Keep your memories close to your hearts as they do help mend. It was nice seeing you at the service today, March 20. Sad times also bring good times such as seeing the family we have known for so many years. God bless each of you.

Wayne was a great a person I had the privilege of meeting through our mutual Barber friend Larry Kartes. Since they were from N.Dakota and I being a Montana guy we shared all the usual ND and Mt Jokes. Thanks for the memories, even though I was out numbered with the laughs we shared.

Thanks Wayne for being a true American who shared his time with us and the Air Force to serve our great country America.

God Bless your family
