Relation: We were hockey parents together

I would like to send my deepest condolences to Wayne’s family. I never saw him often but whenever we bumped into each other he always had the biggest smile and warmest hello. I was shocked and saddened when I heard of his passing. My thoughts and prayers are with his family during the difficult time.
