Ken, Keith, and Karen,
Your dad was a good man and a great uncle, you should be very proud of him. Not only was he our dad's brother but also his best friend. Your dad and mom were so generous to our family and their memories will always be with us. Take comfort in the fact that your mom and dad are together again.

Your dad served his country, family, friends, and community, with honor and dignity; the world would be a much better place if more people were like him. Each of you are in our prayers.

Our hearts go out to my wonderful cousins and their families. Uncle Wayne was simply the best. He will be greatly missed. I will always remember the fun that mom, dad, Aunt Georgie and Uncle Wayne had together. We were all blessed to share those times with them and to have them as our role models. Our prayers are with all of you, love you!
