    Want to express my sympathy to the Jankowiak family. Wayne was a good person and loyal friend. Sanid and I valued his friendship. He’s with his brothers who have gone before him now. So sorry for your loss. Words can never really express how you feel but take comfort in the fact that he is resting in the arms of the Lord now.

Please share your thoughts ...
