To Wayne’s Family,
I have known Wayne for many years from working in the auto body repair business. Always had him install window glass for me. He was a great guy and will be missed. Keeping you in our prayers.
To Betts and family, I am so terribly sorry to hear this. I didn’t even hear until today and my heart hurts all over again. You guys have been family to us our whole lives and will continue to be. I can never remember a time that when I would see Wayne that he wouldn’t give me the biggest hugs. He always wore the best smelling cologne. Wayne was just one of those people that made you happy to be around him and I don’t ever known him without a smile. I am sure that Mom and Dad were beyond thrilled to see him when he passed through those pearly gates! I am sure they are sitting around drinking a beer! Love you all and will be praying for you in the days ahead! Hug!! With love, Sis
