I met Wayne, a whirlwind mix jokes and joy, on a cruise of all places. I was lucky enough to be his and Shirley's server and we quickly became friends! I never had a guest more interested in my life. Wayne showed me how to have more Christ-like attributes especially having joy in difficult circumstances. I have thought Of Wayne often and I am sad to see him go. I know that heaven is a happier place with Wayne.
