Our condolences to Wayne's family. So sad to read this news. I met Alice and Wayne years back through Alice's and my love for depression glass. Had many visits with them at the house. I did end up purchasing Alice's depression glass. She was so happy it was going to good home and the collection would stay together. I visited with Wayne after Alice's passing at the house, he was so gracious and thankful I continued the glass collection. I enjoyed my time with them both. He sure missed her, now they can be together again. Thoughts and prayers to you all.
