These pictures are just amazing. Most of our memories are with Uncle Wayne and Aunt Carol. From tipping over the swing set to Uncle Wayne chasing us with that big catfish. He had a good heart and was the greatest to his girls and even us nieces and nephews. We never seen Aunt Carol without him or Uncel Wayne without her. My heart is truly broken for her and the girls. We were truly blessed to have grown up with this man and proud to call him our Uncle. We love you Aunt Carol, Uncle Wayne and girls.

Dear Amanda and family, I hadn't realized that your dad/ husband had died on Saturday. My sincerest condolences on your loss. He had tried his hardest, and been through so much, his poor body was just tired. Now he is resting in peace. Love to all.
