Carlene, Amy and John. I am so very sorry about your loss and I can't tell you what a joy and privilege it has been to get to know him thru eastpoint. Week after week we sat near each other and it was a highlight of my Sunday to see him and you there. He was such a wonderful man and it was a blessing for me to get to know him. The last Sunday I saw him he sat in my row with me and I enjoyed the extra time to talk. What a gem he was!!

I so look forward to seeing him in glory and I am so glad I am promised to see him there! Jesus took home a special man! May god bless you all!

Sending prayers to you and your family Greg. I'm sorry I did not know your Dad, but if he was anything like his son I would have been proud to call him a friend. God bless you all and give you strength.

Cousin Wayne was my much older cousin so he was a teenager when I was just in the first grade. But I do remember going to his house for one of our family dinners and I just wanted to pet his little dog named Sandy, well she had other ideas, she bit me on my right ankle. If I remember Wayne wasn't even outside at the time but guess the dog was protecting its turf. Wayne was a very happy guy always smiling and when he met Carleen that was it for him. High school sweethearts. He's with his mom, dad and his other aunts and uncles now smiling and rejoying with his Lord. Our deepest sympathy to your family.
