    Very sorry to hear this. I have so many fond memories of growing up across the alley from my cousins. The Shenanigans Wayne and my dad

    would get into. I always thought he sounded like elvis, his deep voice, dark hair and robust laugh. I’m glad I got to visit with him when I went to the diner to eat. Forever in my heart Wayne you will remain. I love you. May God cradle you in his loving arms ♡
