Coleen and family, Donna and I are so very sorry we couldn't express our sympathies in person. I always enjoyed being around Wayne and respected him very much. I knew he had to be a fellow Marine before he even told me, his character showed it. Our prayers are with you all. Brian and Donna Schindler
