Mike and Tony:

Jackie and I would love to be there with you today to honor your families and our good friend, Wayne. Of course our memories go way back when he and I were softball teammates at Brainerd Baptist Church and involved in so many things together as part of that congregation. Jackie and Jeanie were also great buddies.
Your Mom could and would try to make something comforting and uplifting, even in bad times and circumstances.

Love,

Glenn

Glenda and I are so sorry for your loss. Wayne was one of our Very Best Friends. It saddens us to know we won't see him in this life again to share a meal or have a conversation or even to play another round of golf. It is very comforting to know without a doubt that Wayne is with his Heavenly Father and with his sweet Jeannie. I have never met a better example of a Christian man than my brother Wayne. He touched our lives greatly and our lives are enriched by it. We will continue to pray for the family.

I am so sorry for your loss, but what a blessing we have had to have shared in his walk with God! Christ was his life and that was seen in his love for his wife and his family and his gracious demeanor towards all he encountered. Wayne was the epitome of a gentleman, someone who always made you feel good after meeting with him.
