Larry & Monica, Ken &and I came to Vega Sunday to see you and were told by the new Methodist preacher and the young man that waited our table that there is NO funeral home in Vega – I’m sorry we missed you! John Moss sent his condolences- he said Wayne was very kind to him when he started in the business and that his Dad- , T. Moss, and Wayne were great friends. I appreciated Wayne for all the hard work he put into saving the Ogalala and always enjoyed visiting with him. He will be missed!
