Would like to send you and your family our deepest sympathy in your loss.
Dear Judy and family,
Wiggie was one of the kindest and fun fellows in my dad’s Lawrence circle of friends. I will always treasure his visit just after Daddy’s death when he came by the house with pictures and stories of my dad to share with me. A very fine gentleman who will be missed by so many.
Judy and family…our hearts go out to you at this time. Wiggie will be dearly missed…I remember many times growing up when he would make all of us laugh…especially when I was with Ellen, Gayle and Annie while waiting to go to the KU football games! We’d eat lunch at the Legion, catch the bus, watch the game and come home laughing! We will hold you and your family in our prayers…
Dear Judy and Wayne, Our hearts reach out to comfort you and also to all of the “old gang”. Wiggie will always be remembered for being such a fun loving man. I always enjoyed talking to him and hearing the stories that he had to tell. So many fond memories of him – from when I was a little girl (baseball days, breakfast at the Virginia Inn, all the parties, good times at the Legion, and so much more) to an adult. You will always hold a special place in our hearts. The golf balls are flying in heaven today. Thinking of you all. Love, Gayle, Greg and Garrett
