To the entire Mahan family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Wayne was a wonderful man. I loved spending time at the Mahan house as a child. I also loved trips to the bowling alley or Knights Action Park for miniature golf. Thank you for sharing your father with me and all the fun memories! He always amazed me how he was able to take naps with all that noise in the house- playing pool, board games, or music on the radio or record player, and with the wonderful smells of your mom baking goodies in the kitchen. I will cherish those precious times forever. God bless you all and know that I am praying for each and everyone of you during this difficult time.
