Dear Sisson Family, Bob, Caroline, Linda and families, We were very sorry to hear of Wayne's death. David was fond of Wayne in that they talked much about hunting and their dogs. I never got to talk much to him, but listened to him talk of his hunting escapades. Your mother Annabelle, was a kind soft spoken woman and her smile was welcoming. Slowly but surely the roots of Kyger are dwindling away as the years go by. Kyger isn't the same any more without the Sisson Store, Dale fussin' at Mary, and Wayne, Fred and Dale with feet propped up around the old pot belly stove in the store telling stories. Mary gently sacking eggs for the customers, and the kids getting off the bus there for ice cream or a bottle of pop. Those are the childhood memories that won't be forgotten. Please know that your families will be in our prayers and our condolences are with you and yours.
