We call that person who has lost his father, an orphan; and a widower that man who has lost his wife. But that man who has known the immense unhappiness of losing a friend, by what name do we call him? Here every language is silent and holds its peace in impotence.

Our sympathy to all of you. Wayne was our quiet cousin but when he had something to say you listened because he meant it and was so knowledgeable. Glad we got to spend some time with him in Az. You are all in our prayers
