  • Dear Wayne and Family, I was so very sorry to hear about my bus buddy/neighbor's passing. Phyllis and I were neighbors so had quite a few talks on the bus route to Payne High School. We also walked to one another's homes as our farms were not too far apart. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Marge (Schaefer) and John Elden
