Linda and family, His Mom and Dad, Marie and Fred were so proud of Wayne. They had to wait longer than they wanted for him, but found the wait was worth it.
So sorry he was taken from you so early in life. Glad we got to see and talk to him at the 50th class reunion, he was all smiles that night especially when you three were mentioned.

We are so sorry that Wayne's life was cut short. Our prayer is that the family will be comforted by the knowledge that God's grace is extended through our Lord Jesus Christ.
