    I am so sorry I could not be at Wayne’s funeral. He is someone I always admired. I can remember some of the good times we had when y’all were in Roswell, and times we went to the mountains together, and the times we visited in Odessa. I know he will be greatly missed. I know it will not be long now till we shall see him and my Dad. I would just bet Wayne and Dad are having a good ol time together. Vonell, just remember we always will cherish the times we have had with you and your family. God bless you and we will be praying for you. With love, the Clicks
