To The Waynedale News Editors,

(Re: Tribute to Alan Dale Shanyfelt – April 30, 2003 – Page 7)

I want to personally thank you for the wonderful job you did.‑ Alan would have been very happy to see this.‑ It was a wonderful tribute to him, and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for making the space for him.‑ Now everyone will know that his life did indeed mean something to a lot of people.

We would like to remind everyone that they can adopt a soldier as a pen pal by going to:


God Bless our Troops!

Mission First, People Always,

Until they ALL come home,

My “brothers” shall never be forgotten!

Semper Fidelis & De Oppresso Liber!!

Have a HOOAH Day!

Thanks once again,

Tonya Morgan, and Kimberly Elam



I think of THE WAYNEDALE NEWS as “The newspaper with a heart and soul.” I have moved and I no longer get the newspaper delivered ‘free’ to my doorstep; please accept my check for a year’s subscription.
