Chris and Briana I am so very sorry for your loss. I will be keeping you and the family in my thoughts and prayers.

I'm so sorry to hear of your loss Debra. I didn't really know Wayne until I started working at Eastside. His dry sense of humor had me laughing hysterically on more than one occasion. I'll never forget him and Jack bringing me a case of wine because I helped them with their retirement paperwork. Praying God will comfort you and your family during this difficult time and days to follow. God rest his soul.
