Add My Condolences

Lisa, Patrick, Brandon, Brenna, Dwayne.... I'm still stunned. Sorry I was not in the country to pay my respects. So glad Hannah & Jim where there to support all of you. My heart was with you all. Ironically, the house we stayed at had an MG (partly in pieces) in the yard. I thought of Wayne every day because of that car. Love you guys....always. Julie

Wayne, Lisa, Patty, myself, and two other couples became an Air Force Family during our time on the “rock.” We made many memories while stationed there. When we rotated back to the states, we found ourselves together again at Altus AFB and we picked up we’re we left off. I wish we were closer so we could express our sympathies in person, unfortunately we are not. Lisa, we are so sorry and we will be hold you and the family up in prayer. Darrell and Patty
