Not sure what to say?

I'll miss you Uncle Wayne, particularly at the family reunion. I remember the time in Kentucky when you stopped by to visit back in the 60's and 3 "hippies" who were riding across the country spent the night at our farm. You spent the afternoon sitting by the big pond with them and talking. I don't know what you all were discussing but I know they felt your genuine interest in their lives. The following morning they went to church with us. They kept in contact with mom and dad...

Dr, Clymer's teaching and example during my student days at E.T.S, 1952-1955 have enriched my ministry over all the years since, which continue at age 83.

Dr. Clymer was one of the best teachers that I had in seminary. His illustrations in his teaching were what stand out in my mind. One grand fellow!

What a man...touched many ..great life.

We really enjoyed knowing Wayne and considered him a dear friend. May you have pleasant memories of his wonderful life. Our thoughts are with you.

We feel so privileged to have shared our mountaintop moment -- our wedding -- with Wayne seven years ago. He was a gentle giant in our eyes, a source of kindness, joy, wisdom and love. May his spirit abide with all who knew him and may peace come to those who mourn him now.

Dear Virginia,
Our lives were enriched by getting to know Wayne and we know his was better for knowing and loving you. We are so glad we just saw both of you! With full hearts, Judy and Loran Pilling
