Extending heartfelt condolences to all of Wayne's family and friends. I have fond memories from hanging around with him and the 'gang' several summers back in the 70's.: Mike, Bobby, Sheldon & Paula. We had a lot of fun together. So many laughs.. and, interesting talks. I am truly sorry for your loss. May your many memories of him now, and in the future, bring comfort and a good laugh. I am away so cannot attend his service. Otherwise would definitely be attending today. Rest easy buddy. Xo Rosemary Mac Donald
