My parents, Ralph and Margaret Boehringer and Wayne's folks, Nobe and Mary spent many nights playing cards together. Wayne was a bit older than me, but I do remember Mary aka Aunt Mary talking about her boys Wayne and Bruce. You are in our thoughts and prayers during this most difficult time. Hold on to your cherished memories. Bob and Cathy Kendig
