We wish to express our sincere condolences to Waynes's family. We knew him from sitting near each other at mass, at St Peter Claver, for many years. He was so friendly. He always asked about our children as they grew up. We miss seeing and visiting with him. That is a handsome photo of Wayne. Tom & Pat Grams & family
