    Wayne as my Uncle was more like a older brother. I had many meaningful conversations with him, these last few years. I am really going to miss him. I can’t wait to meet Libby.

    I love you so much grandpa. I wish I could have gotten my crap together sooner. I wish we had more time. You never gave up on me. . I wish I could go back to my 10th birthday in West Virginia when we talked about your metals, I thought it was so cool, my grandpa the war hero. You always had something positive to say to me no matter what. You helped me become who I am today. I miss you so much grandpa. I can’t wait until we meet again. Until then I know you’re watching over us. I love you man. Wish I coulda hugged you tighter the last time I saw you.

    Thinking of you, Libby. I understand your loss. Though we were in high school together in Maryland, who knew our late husbands would be from the west side of Chicago. Wishing you peace and comfort.
