I worked with Wayne at Walts Drive Away for many years and I never met a nicer and kinder person. He suffered so much.
Now he can rest in peace. Thank God that he no longer feels the pain and discomfort. Amen

Wayne was a very hard working man and was the nicest man I have ever met in my life. When his wife Jane was ill he worked two jobs and was at the nursing home every day to see her. Wayne made it through a lot of obstacles in his life, but overcame them and lead a good life. His family should be very proud of him. I hope the end was peaceful for him and now he is at rest with Jane. RIP friend
