    Just found out about Wayne's passing. Its been years since I've seen him, as the last few times was when he was fishing with my next door neighbor. I also knew him from DuPont, as we did work together there some years ago. Wayne will be missed. My condolences to the family.

    All those years at DuPont and I didn't know your real name was Conny. Oh well there were worse things I suppose. Just saw you at Jackson's and told you that you could have that piece of Corvette back that you left on hwy 74/76 once, long ago. I never needed it. I know your family is OK and taken care of as that was why we did what we did for so long. It was real knowing you and it certainly was" quite a party".
