We were so blessed to have Wayne in our family. He brought so much joy to my mother and all of us. Always a smile on his face and ready to lend a helping hand to anyone in need. He was an integral part of our family and will live on in our memories forever.

I think my favorite 'Wayne' story was when Wayne had a few beers with his buddies. My mother wasn't real happy with him because he had gotten quite tipsy. The next morning, he came out of the bedroom with quite a headache and a little attitude. He poured his coffee and came and sat at the kitchen table like every morning. Mom looked at him and started giggling. He asked her what was so darn funny. She told him she really liked the tshirt he had put on. He had gotten his tshirt out that morning from the laundry basket and had put on Mom's pajama top. It was pink with ruffles. She couldn't stay mad at Wayne when he was wearing her pajama top. They both laughed....
