Mr. Richard Wynn, 3/24/11, age 71. Mr. Wynn captured our affection and respect as he set and achieved his prosthetic goals. It was so wonderful to see him up and walking, traveling, and enjoying life!

Our thoughts and prayers are with both of their families, and our hearts go out to them at this sad time.
