Post a Condolence

You won’t recognize my name, and it isn’t important that you do. But I need to tell you that Wayne used to deliver trusses to us when I was a framing carpenter. He was just what we needed, always attentive, polite and precise. I am sure he was just as gentlemanly in his private life. I am sorry to read he passed, but his example of character on the job was perfection. He did a good job, I am sure he worked above his payscale. Godspeed Wayne.
