Nancy, Nancy, and all the Alderson family,

Just this week news of Wayne's "exodus" to glory reached me from one of my students. I am a theology professor and Christian ethics is one of the courses I teach. Wayne's example and the story of "Stronger Than Steel" has been a constant feature in my ethics classes when we come to the issues of work-place relations. Quite a number of students have bought Stronger Than Steel as a result of the class, and I know they too have used the story to illustrate Biblical principles for life and work. It was from one of those students that the notice of Wayne's passing came to me. He was moved by the story, bought the book, and then found Wayne's obituary online while seeking more information.

I was a student in Pittsburgh back in the 70s as the story of Pittron Steel and then Value of the Person unfolded. I had the privilege of having a meal with Wayne and a group of others at the Top of the Triangle following an evening conference in those days. The evening left a lasting impression upon me, and thus led to Wayne's constant presence in my classes.

I came to South Carolina as a pastor back in the 80s, and from time to time would talk with Wayne on the phone as I was attempting to bring a Value of the Persn seminar to Columbia, SC. To our loss that did not work out, but I have never forgotten the calls that came from "the man with the hole in his head," as he always identified himself when he called.

I pray that the Lord's comfort will fill your homes now that he has gone before you to glory. Be assured that because of his life and service there is comfort in many, many other homes and workplaces. I am sure they would all join me in thanking all of you for the part you played in his life and service. Wayne's witness and message will live on. May the Lord uphold and keep you all in His steadfast love.

Hi Nancy. Cathie & I were out of town and learned that Wayne had died when we returned home. We're so sorry for your loss. You'll continue to be in our prayers.

Familiar with his actions at Pittron I had my son, Paul, who was aspiring to a career in Human Resources accompany me to one of Wayne' presentations on The Value of The Person. He was inspired by the wisdom in that concept. Paul spent 20+ years in HR with Alcoa and currently is Sr VP Human Resources as well as Chief Administrative Officer for Owens-Illinois (glass) in Toledo. I am glad that I had an opportunity to tell Wayne about his influence on Paul's life and career. Wayne was a treasure. Jay Jarrell
