One Condolence for “GURNEY Wayne”

    Condolences to your family!
    Wayne and I were good friends in school. We haven’t kept in touch since my family moved from from Magrath to Lethbridge but I have fond memories of our friendship.
    I’ll always remember the time my brother “David” and I were at Waynes house playing out back. We were in the hay stack/pile feeding some cows, I jabbed the pitch fork into the hay and up comes my brother holding his head and screaming, he wasn’t hurt that bad, more funny than anything else.
    Rest in Peace Wayne “you were a good friend!
