Not sure what to say?

Every day spent with you was the best. For the better part of three years you became many things. My best friend, my confidant, my cuddle bear, my lover, but most importantly you were hands down without a doubt my soul mate. You effortlessly made me laugh. You knew instantly when something was wrong and did everything you could think of to make me feel better. My life is truly never going to be the same. I may have only had you for the short time of 3 years, but I felt as if We’ve known each...

Wayne was a good man, a loving father, and a great friend. Rest easy brother. That was a crazy game of poker. Until we jam again.
