    One house separated us during may years of our youth.   I thought a lot of Wayne then.  I have been gone from Leaf River for many years but I was able to visit him a few times over the past several years.   We just started from where we had left off.  That is the way it is with good friends.  Those are good memories that I will always have.  My heartfelt sympathies to his family.

    May the promise found at Isaiah 25:8 bring some comfort in the death of Wayne L. Kretsinger. "He will swallow up death forever. The Sovereign Lord will wipe away the tears from all faces." Just imagine, no more pain and grief due to the death of a love one! By means of the Kingdom that that Jesus Christ taught us to pray for, God is going to remove Sickness, old age and death from the human family.

    I am so very sad to learn of Wayne's passing.  I worked for him many years ago at Rockford Products.  He was my mentor in production control and gave me a break when it was still a predominately male field.  My heartfelt sympathy to the family of a great friend, coworker and mentor.
