We are so saddened by your loss. Unfortunately we are finding out after the fact so were unable to show our respects and offer our support. Our last visit with the two of you was at the market and Brent and I left the conversation saying how glad we were to have run into the two of you. Catching up on our families and having such a nice catch up. Thinking of you Lynda and of course the boys. Brent and Marlene Gordon and family.

In the past few years after meeting Wayne at Drew graduation from the Toronto Fire College. The best memory was when Kim, Lynda, Wayne and myself share a overnight trip to London to make wine and get the Davenport coat of arm for Shaw and Drew wedding. As we spent several hours talking I could hear the passion he had for life. You can hear how much coaching his sons and their friends in sport. You can see the respect that Drew, Blair friends have for Wayne every time they meet. Wayne was a Jack of trades a great grandfather, father in law but most of all a husband. His love for Lynda was special you can see it, hear it every time we met. To Kim and I we could never ask for a better father in law for our daughter Shaw and a friendship we will cherish for life. Every time we are in London we will remember a great time, great conversation and time together. Love Kim and Denis

I remember you and Wayne talking about your travels whether ti was riding the motorcycle *always a little worried about that one) or cruising the rivers of Europe. It's hard to believe that we won't be sharing travel stories over lunch again. Wayne enjoyed life and all it had to offer. Your many happy memories will keep Wayne alive in your hearts and I hope will help you through the weeks and months ahead. He will be missed. Thinking of all of you. Jocelyn
