Wayne Cabral died a couple days ago after a brief illness. Wayne stopped working for us a number of years ago when he went to work as a paramedic for one of the area towns. I worked with a few times when he was an EMT over twenty years ago before he became a paramedic himself. He was respected by us all. Also a super nice guy. I never saw him without a smile, even when he was down. He’d flash that smile and it made you feel the world was a good place. Even though he didn’t work for us, I still saw him often at the hospitals when he was bringing his patients in. I saw him just a couple weeks ago. He was the kind of guy you didn’t just say hi and nod to, you wanted to stop and really say hi, good to see you, man.
A Go Fund Me Page has been set up for his family.

I’m sixty-two myself now, at the age when I am starting to see ghosts, and instead of being alarmed, I am reassured by their sight. I know I will see Wayne again. You work the streets as long as he did, and you become a part of them forever.
