Dearest Susie, Michael, Cody, Wendy & family, I am so very sorry for the loss of Wayne. Please accept my deepest of condolences. Especially after losing Kenny only a little over a year ago. I am keeping you all in my heart, thoughts and prayers.
I have so many fond memories of him & you all as well. Wayne could always make us laugh & smile. I am sure he would want nothing more than his family to celebrate the best of the great times in his life.
May he rest in peace & I am sure he is now comforted being reunited with his son. May God bless you all bring you comfort & peace in the difficult days ahead.
