Not sure what to say?

I'm doing some research for our 50th High School (Fork Union Military Academy - Class of 1969), and I was deeply saddened to learn of Wayne's passing. We were very close friends in school, but became separated during the Viet Nam Conflict. There were very few friends that I actually looked forward to seeing again, but Wayne was definitely one of them. Wayne - I'll have to look forward to our reunion in our Heavenly Father's House, but hopefully not too soon. God bless and keep you until then.
