Thinking and praying for you, I know your hearts are broken as I am hurting for you. I know you will miss him. But the wonderful news is he knew Jesus and is in heaven with the love of his life, someday we will all be together gathered around the feet of Jesus rejoicing and laughing, sharing wonderful memories together. Thank you Wayne for the person you were, and the fun memories you left us with. You will always be my brother-in-law, and a very special one because you always treated me that way. My prayer is that God will give the family strength and peace, and that his arms will hold them tight through his love, mercy, and grace. My Love to All of You. Aunt Glenda

I know I will see you again one day laughing beside Aunt Carolyn where none of us will ever have to suffer ever again. I will for sure miss your mischievous grin.... but I know you are free from the burdens of this harsh world, and for that I am glad. I cherish the memories, and look forward to the day we will reunite in Heaven. All my Love, Always. Cydnie
