Dear Wayne, Cathy and family,
I was so saddened to hear of the loss of your sweet father. He was such a kind, loving, God fearing man. Everytime we ran into one another he was wearing a smile. I know your beautiful mother was waiting for him with open arms at Heaven's gate. Keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers.
