Jeanne, Dr David Rauschenberger sent out the notification. I am sorry to hear about Wayne's passing. 1 Thess 4:14" For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again,even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep." We enjoyed our visit with you and Wayne a few years back when we visted Pittsburgh and Butler.
