Dear Mrs. Virginia, so sorry to learn of Wayne’s passing. I worked with him at Trane during the 70’s. I also owned the house in Cunningham that your granddaughter purchased. I always found Wayne to be a loving compassionate man. I know you will miss him and I pray for God’s love and healing for you and your family. I also didn’t know you had lost the second daughter. It is sad how our lives send or takes us in different directions and we lose contact with our friends. I hope your memories of him will carry you through these difficult times. You have my deepest sympathy....Doris Owen Nave
