Dear Colleen,

I was so sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. He was a fixture at my house when I was a little girl. I loved to see him come in with his work satchel and open it up and see all those tv tubes and to see him pick the one that would bring my television back to life (even though we only had 6 channels back then and could only see half of them if I stood in the right spot holding the antenna). I would especially love it if he brought your Mom to the house so we could sit and have coffee. I have so many great memories of your folks. We went to the Lone Star Ranch in New Hampshire one time to see a country music show and your Mom had made some home made root - beer we were so excited to try it but so were the bees. There were swarms all around the bottles we had a really good laugh over that for many years to come!

We would visit at your house as well and I thought it was so cool to get to play with your Barbie dolls. I just knew you as the really pretty teenager with the long black hair but would love to listen to your Mom and Dad talk about you going to school and then to college.

I ran into your parents a few years back at Assonet Animal Hospital they had all their grandchildren with them(even the one with fur) and it was really nice to get to enjoy their company now as an adult and realize just how funny your Dad was. It was no wonder why my Dad was so fond of him. I later found out that my son's best friends Dad worked with your Dad at Morton Hospital (Ken Nieveira such a small world) and was surprised to hear that my Dad was the guy that your Dad spoke of on the old WPEP radio station in Taunton.

I am so glad that you had so much time to enjoy your Dad and hope that his passing was easy and will be with your Mom. I am not sure if you would remember my parents they were Joe & Ina Gallant from Berkley. I am their youngest daughter Jo-Ellen. I could not let the opportunity to pass to let you know that just how much he meant to me and my family.

I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of your father. It was my honor to work with both He and your Mom at Morton for so many years. I always remember Wayne as being a man who could fix just about anything he touched. We had so very many laughs and I have been reflecting back on the good times. His passion was country music and thought Waylon Jennings was an outlaw and not a true musician. I often thought what he must have thought about the artists of today.
I will always remember how much he loved you and so enjoyed his grandchildren. One thing I loved about Wayne was his zest for life. He was kind to everyone, respected everyone always did his best. He indeed was a survivor and I know he is with your Mom in a better place. He was a good man, may he rest in peace
