So sorry to hear about Wayne. A boy I will never forget and was so proud of his service to our country during the Vietnam War. He was a sweet soul, and will be missed. He is now safe in the arms of the Father. My prayers for his family.

So sorry to hear about Wayne. Many great memories of him at the Guggenhiem house. All of us around the large dinner table enjoying Sunday dinner. I will always be grateful for him cutting my parents grass all those years. May he rest in peace and join the rest of the family who have left us in heaven
