  5. Mark and all your family; Deepest sympathy for the loss of your brother. I remember when we were in Jr. High he picked us up on a cold winter night at the Hamden Mart and gave me a ride home. Wayne was in my Sister Kathy’s Homeroom at Hamden High and she said he was a nice kid, and I’m sure that he was a nice man. Sorry for your loss, he died way too young.
