Becky, Bobby & Laurie, Bart & Carlotta, and all of Mr. Wayne's grands and great-grands,

I was so sad to learn of Mr. Wayne's passing. As I have learned from the many loved ones I have lost, trust in your Faith, and relive all those happy memories you have of him, both individual memories you have of him and those of the whole family as well. They have really helped me over the years. May God comfort each of you with his love and peace.
Love to you all,
