I am sorry that I can not be there Sunday to pay my respects in person. But I am thankful for the visit my other cousin Steve and I had with Wayne in January! His only request was for prayer and me to buy him the "Sports Illustrated Swimsuit" addition. He was his usual jovial self and never heard him complain! I am sure he is being comforted and reunited with his Mother in Heaven.

So sorry for your loss. I first met Wayne in home room at Cloverleaf Jr. high. We were friends for a long time and I will miss him.
We had a lot of fun together over the years. He was there as a friend during some rough times too.
May you find much peace. I know he loved all of you very much. He's reunited with his wonderful mom now.
I'm sorry I can't make it to his services, you all will be in my thoughts and prayers.

May you find peace in Heaven Wayne. I truly believe many of the challenges you faced in life were the result of an auto accident when you were in your late teens or early twenties that left you in a coma for a week
