    Dear Jeanette and family, though we did not know him we are sorry to hear of his passing. Our hearts are divided as we grieve with you, yet rejoice with him as he rests in the arms of Jesus. Love to you all, Aunt Ceil (your mom’s sister in NH].

    Robert, Micheal & Charlie,
    So sorry to hear about Wayne. Haven’t seen any of you since when we worked for Jim Fritz. Prayers for you all and hugs too. May he rest in peace. In heaven with Johnny Bull now.
