I will always remember Wayne as a good friend and brother in Christ. My prayers are with you all in this difficult time. As Wayne closed his eyes Friday in death he opened them in heaven seeing the face of our Lord. He is home! God bless you all.

We loved Wayne so much. The Taylor family will miss him terribly. Wayne was such a fun loving man of God
There was never a dull minute when the Taylor men got together. Still treasure the tape of our sweet Mama's funeral in May 2001 when Wayne.prayed the sweet prayer . Not many men could ever be the man Wayne Sechler was. My sweet Martha how we love you. What.a glad reunion day in heaven when all us Taylor's and all the extended family will once.again get together. To his children and grandchildren
you have such a Godly example with these wonderful parents. Hold our love and prayers at this time close in your hearts. WE WILL SEE YOU SOON WAYNE

What a wonderful family. There’s no question that sweet Wayne is in the arms of Jesus today! Martha and Lori, you both did such a wonderful job taking care of him and made my visits so much better. You became like family to me, and will always have a special place in my heart!

We loved Wayne so very much. He loved his Lord and his family. He always had a smile. Wayne was such a devoted Man of God and a devoted family man. So precious. He loved his Martha and treated her like a queen. His love just exuded to his sweet Martha always. Wayne was such a dear dear friend! It was an honor to know him and be called friend. He raised a wonderful family and they were always in church @ Landis Baptist Church and at Camp Meeting, even when they lived in Clemmons. Such an honor to know a wonderful man of God! My love to each of his children and grandchildren and especially to my sweet friend Martha, his wife. Much love, Larry and Esther Novotny
