I am Wayne’s niece and I just spent 2019 Thanksgiving with my uncle Wayne, he flew out to Texas and he stated it was his first time ever flying he stayed for a week and kept saying he wanted to come back to visit. He kept telling me how proud he was of me and I am going to miss him but I know he yet lives just in another form because energy never dies it only transforms. Fly high Duke. Love ❤

Mike was a true friend , I will miss his warm and humorous spirit. Everyday will be a little less full for me and I’m sure for everyone else that knew him. God speed Mike.

To the family and dear friend of Michael, my heart goes out to you. I ve known him every since he stepped foot in VA. When he cut that ponytail I almost didn't know who he was. He will be missed.
