“Over the past year to year-and-a-half, I have known about a dozen relatives, friends and acquaintances that have passed away. Most of them knew their time was coming to an end. Given the hand they were dealt, they could have spent their final days, weeks, or months feeling bitter, angry, confused, and frustrated. Instead, each and every one chose, with dignity, grace, and even style to use their last days productively.”

You know that often-used phrase, “one of the nicest people in the world?”
A wonderful guy with a perpetual smile,
About three months after retiring, he was jolted with the bad news. You have Lou Gehrig’s disease.
God bless you, Wayne.
UPDATE: The following was e-mailed to me at 11:10 this evening.....
Dear Kevin, I saw this article several week ago and forward it to Wayne Wankowski to pick up his spirits.
Sincerely Dale Etchells
