Condolences on the passing of Wayne Montano

My sadness is great. My sympathy to you as well. Am glad to have had both of you in my life – Chris

I am so sorry to hear about Wayne passing away. Praying for you to make it through the holidays. I have lost people close to me and know how much you miss him. When you think of him, he is there in your heart and attached to your soul. You will be with him again in God’s kingdom. So sorry. Michael.

Dear Jan – I am so very sorry to hear of Wayne’s passing. You and Wayne occupied a very special business position and you will be missed. I wish you the best on the road ahead. With my deepest sympathy. – Bob

Hello Jan, Gae and I heard about Wayne, we are so sorry. How are you doing? You and Wayne were always so cheerful and helpful to so many countless people. For years we handed out your names to your old customers at the shows. Everyone missed you both. The business has changed dramatically and so many of our friends have retired. I really miss the comradery and dinners we shared after the show. You have our friendship, love and prayers. – Mike & Gae.

Please accept my sincere condolences on Wayne. I will always remember you both with the pieces I have. – Rusty

Oh, Jan I’m so sorry for you and your family for your loss. I’m sure he will be missed greatly. My prayers are with you my dear. – Judy

Dear Jan: This is a very sad story about Wayne and we are so sorry. It must be so very terrible for you to have this happen. Thank you for taking such good care of us over the years – you both have been so kind and done such good work and helped us so much. – Mary

Dear Jan, Poor baby. I am a widow as well and it’s excruciating. I miss my husband so much. I admire your strength in getting back to all of your customers—that can’t be easy. I hope his passing was peaceful. – Wynn

Jan, I’m so sorry for your loss. My heart hurts for you, and for those who are close to you. Thank you for letting me know. I am tearing up, and I only know you over the internet… I just know how devastating and difficult it is for you right now. Please find glimmers of peace and comfort as best you can. Sincerely, – Diana

Jan, I’m so sorry for your loss. There was no sentimental value to the cat. Just memories from trips we have taken. You can dispose of the cat, we will still have our memories. You will be in our prayers – Bob & Sandy

Jan, Please accept my sincere condolences. Everything becomes secondary, I hope you and your family are able to grieve. I recently lost my mother and was able to gain some comfort and hope from a beautiful scripture in the Bible. Revelation 21:3,4 speaks of a day when we will be free from the sadness that death brings and the hope God offers. Wayne was such a talented man; I am sorry for your loss. – Frank

My condolences on your loss. I didn’t do a lot of business with Wayne but I believe our first encounter was back in the day when you guys set up a booth at the Glendale shows. Be well yourself. Once again – so sorry for your loss. Best, Denny

That is so sad to hear, He was a gentleman and an artist!!!! There is no other place I could trust like Wayne and Jan. We both worked with our spouses and I’m sure for us both it was an honor and a pleasure! – Steve

Dear Jan, I am replying now because I wanted to give you some space. I am sorry about your loss, and I cannot even imagine losing a life partner. I appreciate your impeccable work for us, and I will keep you and Wayne in my prayers. – Riccardo

Hello Jan, It was with sadness that my brother Bob informed me of Wayne’s passing. My condolences to you and your family. Wayne was one talented guy that so many of us in the antique world are going to miss. He was a kind man that always treated me with respect. Again, he will be missed. All the best to you! – Rick

Dear Jan, I am so very sorry to hear of Wayne’s passing. Please accept my deepest and sincerest sympathies. May loving memories bring you some comfort and peace. God bless you, – Nelson

Dear Jan, Oh no – we are both so terribly, terribly sorry to hear of your sudden loss of Wayne! Please accept our heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. I am so glad you are with them. It always helps soften the loss, at least a little bit, I think. Thank you, so very much, for taking the time to let us know. He will be terribly missed by all that knew him. He was such a very kind man. Hugs and prayers to you and your family. – Sally and Robert

I’m deeply sorry for your loss, Jan, my sincerely condolences to you and your family. Please know I will know I will keep you in my prayers. With love and gratitude for all you both did to save so much glass for so many of us, and for future generations. I will let some of the antique community know of this terrible loss, may Wayne rest in eternal peace. My deepest sympathies, Terry

Hi Jan, I am very sorry to hear this news. It is one thing to be able to prepare yourself mentally for these times when it is a protracted illness, and it is another thing altogether to have been through what you have been through over the course of the last four weeks. You and your family have my most sincere condolences.

I was only able to talk with Wayne a small handful of times over the phone. Each time however the conversation was easy, longer than needed to conduct business, seeming like we had known each other a long time. They always concerned glass, but they were far ranging conversations always covering far more territory than the item at hand. You and Wayne also ran your business honestly and passionately from where I could see. I never hesitated in recommending your shop on Facebook or in person when I found someone in need on your service for items special to them. He was an artist in his own right.

You are very fortunate to have had your family by your side when he passed. He was fortunate to be able to go with his family near him. I am certain that made the transition easier for him. Know that you are in my thoughts as you have been in the days since I heard this terrible news. Wayne will be missed on this earth – Dave

We would like to offer our sincere condolences to you Jan. Wayne was such a levelheaded guy. We are sure he will be missed. – Duane

Oh dear Jan … I am shocked and so deeply saddened to hear this news. Wayne did great work for me for 30+years. He always had a sense of humor & listened politely as I asked him to turn my sows ear into a silk purse (which he did). I am sure you are lost right now but do take care of yourself. – Marsha

Jan, I hope you know how much you & Wayne are loved! He was such a great guy! Hard to imagine Jan without Wayne…we were holding Wayne in our thoughts and hearts as he was preparing to cross…now our thoughts and love are with you and your sons as you go forward…always here for you…- Linda and Sam

My thoughts are with you Jan (all the way from Australia) – Silvia

Jan, I am so, so sorry for your loss. You two were a great team. I always looked forward to seeing you guys at shows and having Wayne fix my bottles. He will be missed. – Carol

Jan, I am so sorry to hear such news. We met at Hillsborough years ago… heartbreaking. Hugs to you and family. – Michele

Jan, I am so sorry to hear this. Wayne will be missed by so many of us glass collectors. He seemed to be such a gentile spirit and did amazing glass repair. You are in our thoughts and prayers. – Judy

I am so sorry. He was a fine fellow and excellent craftsman- Hester

Wayne was such a dear saint. Jan, I am so sorry for your loss. I almost stopped by your place a few weeks ago to check in. I wish I had. What a hope we have in seeing him again soon. “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints” Psalm 116:15 – Elysee
