The family would like to extend its heartfelt thanks to all of Wayne's social buddies (you know who you are), to the caregivers from Home Instead, the Alzheimer's Project and Big Bend Hospice along with many members of the medical community for their assistance over the past months. In lieu of flowers the family ask that you consider donating to Big Bend Hospice or your local hospice services. Services for Wayne will be Thursday, July 13th, at Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church. A rosary will be held at 2:30 with a funeral mass to follow at 3:15.
