Kevin's Uncle Wayne passed away quietly in his sleep this morning. He was a good man who will be missed by all. Wayne was my MIL's younger brother, one of four. He is the first sibling of seven in that family to pass on. Fern (MIL) and Wayne were very close. He used to take her out on the Missouri River in his boat to fish. She remembers those days when they were both so happy. Nothing either one of them loved more than fishing on the river. Wayne also loved to garden. In fact, he was working in his garden yesterday. We spent time with Fern today, then I went on to spend some time with Wayne's widow, Joan. Cathryn took a picture of him, Fern and their brother Dean at Fern's birthday party at the beginning of this month.
He is the one on the left, MIL in the middle and brother Dean on the right. My Kevin has his back to the camera.
