Dorothy and family;we were saddened to hear of Wayne's passing. I remember Wayne and his father as the ever present ushers at Zion and his kindness and willingness to serve at my parent's funerals. May God's grace comfort you at this time.

I have fond memories as a little girl of Wayne driving by our farm with his loader and sometimes stopping in for a visit. He almost always had a smile on his face to brighten our day. God's blessings to you Dorothy and family.

Even though we never met, the kind and loving words shared by your daughter made me feel as if I did. Shelly and family, God bless you as you mourn the loss of Dad/ Grandpa. May you feel his loving arms enfold you and give you peace. Love you all, Cathy

Just feeling very sad tonight, as I'm sure all of are, too. It's hard to believe Wayne won't be with us anymore. I'm sure Molly? is also suffering without her beloved master.
