My deep and heartfelt sympathy on the loss of Wayne. I was so shocked to hear of his passing and want you to know how very sorry I am.
From what I know of Wayne and what you have told me in the last few years he was a loving husband and good father.
Alex and Kyle are such shining examples of the great job that both of you did in raising them. They will always be a constant reminder of his love and influence on them.
Please let all of your family know how deeply saddened I am.
With Love & Sympathy,
Lena and Chris Kristoff
