Patty and family, so sorry for your loss. I bowled with Wayne in the 80's. I remember him for his big smile, big heart and his humor. Once you met Wayne, you never forgot him. My deepest sympathy, Larry Jahsman.

It is hard to type through a waterfall of tears but,I'll try... What I know and loved about Wayne is simple, he saw ME, he acknowledged ME and he made it clear that I mattered, with out directly saying so. He would part a sea of people in order to greet me with a genuine "It's good to see you! how are you doing?" He would listen carefully and respond truthfully and he would make me laugh when I really didn't want to but, really needed to. I have always believed that the quality of time with someone holds more value than the quantity of time and honestly 5 minutes with Wayne was 5 minutes you wouldn't forget. I am so, very thankful for the laughs, the encouragement and love Wayne shared with me everytime we met. I really can't say how many times his words and amazing bear hugs lifted me up to a better state of mind but, I am grateful for every time he did. To those that were lucky to meet Wayne they'll tell you many great things about Wayne and they are all true! Rest easy my friend...

Dear Patty and family, My prayers and thoughts are with you at this very sad time in your lives. I know how you are feeling....devasted!!! You see I just lost Marshall (my husband) on November 15th of this year due to squamous cell carcinoma. Know that Wayne is no longer suffering and that he is being held in palm of our Lord's hands. He is home safe. God bless each and everyone of you.
