Dad -
These days have been hard, but today, was the toughest.
I miss you so much. We had a conference call and a drink to celebrate you - tears and laughs and lots of love.
It was hard not to have you here but I can’t even imagine the way your celebrating today.
Sam said he bets your running with pain free legs. I bet he is right.
Your family is a hot mess trying to navigate around a Zoom call, but we did it and it was fantastic.
I am sure you enjoyed that too.
I love you Dad -
I hope you know how much.
Happy Birthday 🎈

Growing up you were "Big Stinks" and I was your " little stinks". I always thought of you and Jackie like grandparents being with you guys all the time on the weekends. We always went to your favorite restaurant The Steak and Ale to eat. We always would go on car rides and he would play a game with me called "go to sleep and wake up" LoL you thought it was so much fun to play with the power windows with me because I thought you had the magic touch to make it go up and down. I am so glad you and Jackie were able to come to our wedding, you ALWAYS made time for family :) we will miss you and your jokes here on Earth but you will remain in our hearts forever. Until we meet again--your little stinks-- Christina

Wayne would always call me and introduce me as his baby brother. all my life he did this.
When I was little Wayne used to take me with him all the time until we got older.
I remember Wayne and Tommy used to play rough and would call me to patch the drywall.
Wayne helped me get my first computer and also put it on his and Jackie’s HH Gregg credit card, back then they were really expensive.
Wayne always used to mess with everyone by kidding with them.
I have always looked up to him and respected Wayne because he was a great Father, Brother , and Husband.
I will miss him the rest of my life here on Earth until we are reunited in the future . But I know Wayne is in Heaven playing cards with Mom, Dad, John, Audrey, and Norma.

Wayne I have and always have loved you!!!
