Dear Shirley & family,

Our thoughts are with you as you reflect on Wayne’s life and remember all the good times. We will miss seeing him while on our daily walks with the dogs through the neighborhood. Wayne used to cut my hair when I moved back to Lawrence in the early 80’s, and a few years later, we all became neighbors. Our sympathy on your loss.
