I'm shattered. I just read the paper. I can't believe it. I didn't know Wayne a long time but for the last several years we've been teammates on a couple of pool teams on Wednesday nights. Wayne and I hit it off I guess and we spent hours each night talking about the problems of the world. I don't have all that many friends in the world but I'm proud to call Wayne one of mine. I want to send my deepest condolences to his family and all of his friends. I can't hardly see to type this with the tears in my eyes. Goodbye Wayne. Paul L. Rueger
