So sorry to hear about Wayne, he was such a nice gentleman. I enjoyed visiting with Wayne at Decoration over the years, he seemed so happy and positive. I will miss him and his hugs. Very sad about his passing. Sharon Whitson Lander

Rest in peace, Red.I knew Red from Santa Maria, CA. His son-in-law John was my best friend. We spent many of hours at Red's house just sittin' and chewin' the fat.I'll never forget the time the three of us was sittin' outside the garage at Red's house and this rather heavy gal come walkin' by and Red leaned over and whispered in my ear and said,"If she had to haul butt she'd have to make two trips." I tell ya I laughed so hard that I fell out of my chair. Red had a heart of gold and he would give ya the shirt off his back and then some. My condolences to the family.
