    Dear Cousins,
    Please accept my deepest condolences. I'm very sorry for your loss. I too feel it and although I'm glad that Wayne and I reconnected in recent years, I wish I would have had far, far more time on the phone or sitting around a table at Bob Evans with "Leroy" -as we knew him. His company was delightful and his sense of humor, though sardonic, was very welcome. Hopefully, some day in the great beyond we can once again reconnect and I'll get to hear all his stories.
