It isn't easy to have to say good bye to an old friend. I wish we could have all spent more time together. You and my friend, your wife, Neva set Hank and me up on our first date and here it is almost sixty years later and we are still together. Neva, you had a great husband and Samantha, you had a wonderful daddy. We will all meet again someday. Rest in peace, Wayne. We love you. Hank & June Kerr
