Mary, please accept my sympathy. I was saddened to learn of Wayne's long fight and passing. John Dickson notified me Friday, and said that he and Gogi were fortunate to have had lunch with Wayne and you a few weeks back. I have fond memories of the times we shared, oh so many years ago. Please let me know when you will have a "celebration" of Wayne's life, John said sometime next Spring. I would hope that I'll be able to attend. Again, my sincerest condolence.
