I saw the posts about Brother Wayne Dixon on my e-mail and on facebook.

R.I.P. my Friend and Brother. Enjoyed the discussions about photography and cameras that we had. My heart is heavy at your passing,but to know you are free from pain and that chair, is uplifting.

Rest easy, my friend. We have the watch.  Toujours Pret!

Harold, I posted Wayne's obituary in Fiddler's Green.  As to posting anything to Wayne's wife, I have no email for or from her.

Comment by harold goldstein on Thursday

Harry, can you give this ti his wife.I just wrote this for another friends wife.  He died suddenly last week.



New days are gone with each night.

Love forever does not keep time.

With no regard to what was in sight,

While all this time you have been mine.


Thank you for all your time in life.

Thank you for understanding me.

Thank you for being my wife.

My goal was always, to keep you happy.


Today the days went too fast.

There was concern it won’t be long

The days and nights just won’t last.

When nighttime comes, please be strong.


We know I won’t see you soon, 

But soon, we’ll be together again.

There’s nothing that I can undo;

Except to keep on loving you,

The way I do.    Till then

I posted the obituary of Wayne Dixon.  He now resides at Fiddler's Green, free of his wheelchair.

Hey Frank, Carl is a gun bunny with one of them red cords on his Stetson. But we still love him.

This was the third design of the 2d Cavalry DUI, worn from 1924-1931. The sharp points on the ends of the bottom scroll again called for a redesign.
