    Judy, DeWayne was one of a kind and will be greatly missed! I enjoyed working with him on our many "road trips" and especially appreciated the trundle bed he made for our former home in Temple. His kind spirit will not be forgotten. We had great times at the deer lease too. I will miss his smiling face and quick wit. Stay strong Judy! God bless!
