Mr. Wayne was a regular customer of ours and we always enjoyed when he would come for metal. I’m sure he will be missed by his family and I know we’ll miss him at Wholesale Trailer.
So sorry to hear about Wayne he was special to our family. Prayers and thoughts are with the families during this difficult time. Connie Arnold
