I am so honored to have been able to participate in his care at Citrus. He had so many wonderful stories and the sweetest smile. When I was assigned to him the last visit before he passed, I was so happy to see him again, although sad to know he was back in the hospital. My sympathies go out to a wonderful family and I pray that all of you will find strength and peace during this time.

Wayne was the best and I know that Frances has been waiting for him a long time. We pray that God will grant all you kids and grandchildren a special blessing. We are so sorry we can`t be with you as we are in South Dakota but our prayers will be with each and everyone of you. Keep remembering just how special Wayne and Frances{little miss sunshine} were.

We all will miss you Wayne. You were so special Jacob and Justin. They looked up to you and enjoyed going fishing and hunting with their Pops. Bill has the boat ready for you when you arrive up there. He has been waiting for you. May peace and love be with the family left behind. It's good bye for now until we see each other again.
