Wayne and Dot were our good friends for many years. Wayne and I worked together in the "Food Service" business for about 10 years. He was always a man-of God... hard working and honest. I missed him when he moved away..But now... I know I'll see him soon!

Wayne is my brother in law and I was so blessed to have known him for 59 yrs. I could always talk to him about everything, He was my rock for alot of years. Debbie, Jenny I love you and I know it hurts now, but just knowing he is not suffering any longer, find comfort in this and he and Dot are in heaven rejoicing waiting on us to be with our Lord. I bet him and his family and my family are having a great reunion and celebrating and no worries any longer.
