Wenda's Mom and Brother

Wenda's mom gets some one on one time with her son Wayne who lives in BC.  She hasn't been with him in 5 years,  so this visit was a most welcome get together.

The Siblings Together

Wayne, Wenda and Warren were together again after Wayne arrived on his Harley bike from BC.  Wayne went riding with Terry, Wayne and Wayne's buddy Don (from BC),  when a car cut Warren off.  Warren and bike fell over knocking him unconscious,  broke a rib and his collarbone.  But here he is the next day at the 95 th birthday party for Ken.
