  1. To Lewis. Im not sure if you will remember me, but I dated Wayne back in 1980-1981. My mother June was married to your brother, Paul. Im so sorry for your loss. I assume Wayne was sick. My heart goes out to his wife and children, also. I know you and they will grieve his passing, but know that he is in a better place than even we are. I lost my youngest daughter (23 yrs old) to a drunk driver not quite 3 yrs ago, and its not easy. I would love to come to the funeral but I live in Texas now. Take care and you are all in my prayers. If you feel like it please write back. Becky Day
