    I’m so sorry, Doris, that he passed. I saw him a couple months earlier at Zehrs and we had a nice discussion. It was a shock to hear he was gone. We all used to go to King Edward School together. I thought he was a good guy. He was the only one from then that I continued to occasionally meet.
    I am saddened by your loss.

    I offer you my most heartfelt condolences for the loss of Mr. Brown(Wayne). We live next-door for so many years and every time I would come over to play with Trina he would threaten to share his peanut butter and onion sandwich with me. Such a lovely man and I know he will be missed by you all and anyone who knew him. You are in my thoughts and prayers during this sad time.

    Dear Doris and Family. So very sorry for your loss. As you are aware I worked with Wayne for more than 20 years and grew to know his terrific sense of humor and his love of family, especially his grandkids. His choice of hockey team was a little off but I forgive him for that. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. Joe and I offer our deepest condolences and we hope your memories will give you some peace.

    I was very pleased for the opportunity to work with Wayne over the past year. It offered me the chance
    to experience his wit, charm and great sense of humour. He was a strong willed man who was always
    looking for the positive in each of his days. He will be missed.
