I never did hear exactly how Wayne died.  It had been a year or so since I'd communicated with him.

I was just looking at my book collection on top of this rolltop and saw a copy of 'The Walls Of Jolo'.  I found this copy online and wanted it because of the story I've told many times about it.

In 8th grade English at West, we were required to do an oral book report.  I had found that particular book in my mother's Reader's Digest collection a few months before.  It's about an Englishman being held by tribesmen in the Phillipines and it's, to put it mildly, resque as can be.  I just had to see if I could get away with using that book.

If you knew Wayne when he was younger, you knew he wasn't a good reader.  Well, after I did my book report on that book I, of course, confided in all my buddies about how sexy it was.  After Kenny, Stan, and others had read it and we were all talking about it, Wayne just had to try to read it too.  I think it was that book that showed Wayne how important reading could be.  :)~

Wayne had a heart attack and was in the hospital about a week.  He went home and the next day he had another heart attack which killed him.  I miss him bunches.  We had become close over the phone for about a year before.
