Wayne n Grace shared a Love that others could see. They smiled at each other, held hands. Their eyes would sparkle when you would see them together. We at Oakwood thank you for letting us care for your parents. Recently Wayne sang songs with me. He talked about how he enjoyed music. I know it brings Peace to know they are strolling together in those golden streets of Heaven n enjoying their Heavenly Family Reuion. Hugs n Prayers sj
