Our dear Ashley, we’re so sorry that you have lost the Love of your life. The last time we saw the two of you together he looked at you with such love. Our thoughts and prayers will always be with you and the children. We love you very much. Ronnie and Claudia.

He was like a son to me. We worked together from the time he was just 20 until about 2011. We shared so many of life’s special moments and struggles. I saw him mature from a wild and woolly kid to a serious businessman who still had a wild and woolly side. I considered him one of my best friends.

Wayne deeply loved his parents, sister, children, and mates. He would give anyone the shirt off his back if they needed it. His death is a tremendous loss. I will miss him.

Tee is a wonderful sweet soul. I never saw him without a smile on his face and he was always doing something for his fellow man. Although we did not spend much time with each other after our working days together were over, I feel this deep void now in my heart. I know Tee is rejoicing with his Dad and his sister right now in heaven. He loved both of them so much. I will always remember my good friend, Tee Wayne Abshire. My prayers go out to his children, his Mother, fiancé' and all his family. May God give you comfort. Crawfish and Ribs of Heavenly quality are on the menu tonight in Heaven.
