2 Condolences for Wayne M. Diamond
Dear Micki, Mikal and Josh,
I was so very sad to hear today of Wayne’s passing. My daughters and I remember so well his generosity as a neighbor many years ago, but mostly his understanding and great compassion as we grappled then with my husband’s untimely passing. May you know that you are all held in our hearts at this time. We wish you peace, and the joy of happy memories of a truly lovely man.
We are so sad to learn of Wayne’s passing, but also thankful that we were able to get to know him a little, even if it was only for a short time. We will miss seeing him walking the dog. He always had a friendly word about the dogs, the garden, etc. and it brightened our day to stop and chat for a moment. We send our love and wish you peace in this very difficult time. In love and friendship, Shani, Dave, Savannah and Sam Hyson
