    Wayne & family, I am so sorry to read about your mom's passing, but I always loved that lady no matter where we saw each other we would always stop and talk. Just be comforted knowing that she is back with your Dad now and they're waiting on all of you children to join them when it is God's Will. Love always, Judy.
