I'm glad I had my coffee before being exposed to such a mug.  Nice shirt!

I got a message from a Sabrina Dixon,a daughter said she hasn't heard anything about Wayne.I don't know if they are close.

Harry and Dave;

I sent Wayne's nephew a friend request, also figured a way to send a message. We'll have to wait and see what happens.

Harry;

I will try to send him a friend request to see if he will accept it.

Comment by Harry Warner on June 1, 2018 at 6:20pm

Jim, I'm not on Facebook but any help would be great.  Are you able to contact him?  Does he show a phone #? I have no problem with calling him.

Harry;

I was on Facebook and looked at Wayne's page. I saw that he has a nephew named Todd Dixon on there maybe we could try and contact him to check on Wayne.

It was mid-December when I last had contact with Vi, Wayne's Mrs. At that time she was hoping to have Wayne home for the holidays. We had not heard from Wayne for some time prior to that.  I have been searching in newspapers in his locale for ANY news that may have his name.  Nothing!  A soldier with as much military, as well as personal history as he has had, you would think is worth being noted.  I do not speak of Wayne being in the past, but I am a realist.  Much time has passed and Wayne's health was failing for months before he was hospitalized.  It would certainly cheer us all to see his name in attendance.  He was the first to join Oldtimers and I miss "seeing" him.
