  • Dear Greg, Doug, and Dave,

    I was saddened to hear of your Dad’s passing. I thought of all the good times our families had at Rotary events and parties at holiday times. Wayne was a kind person and always listened. When I first moved to Florida many years ago, it was your parents condo, I went to feel like home. I am unable to be at the memorial service as I am in upstate New York this week. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.
