But may the God of all grace, who called us to His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after you have suffered a while, perfect, establish, strengthen, and settle you.
1 Peter 5:10 (ESV)

Wayne was a great Christian neighbor; a clear positive witness to all around him. Our talks were always up lifting. We will miss Wayne.

My prayer for all the family is that through the love and grace of Jesus Christ, our Lord, each of you would continue to grow in Christ, continue to be established in Christ, be strengthened in Christ, and rest in the sovereignty of our Heavenly Father’s will. Grant this Father in Jesus Name.

I will miss our “fireside” chats around the reunion grill. Wayne was always the chief cook.

Karen, Aunt Geneva and Jan — I pray God’s peace and comfort over each of you.

My thoughts are with Geneva and Jan today.

It is so hard to think of what to say at this time.
Just know that he was loved.

I'm trying to think back to so many years ago.
I think I remember him playing "Elephant Walk" on the piano.
Funny how one's brain can recall snippets of time.

May he rest in peace.
Love, Deb and Terri Flanagan
