So sorry to hear about Mr. Mowery but he is now at peace and rest. Gone is the body but the memories will last forever. First,I got to know him, his wife and some of the children as we sat close to them at UT football games. Later, we got to know them better at church. Then, later than that, I got to see him occasionally at Hardees on Campbell Station Road.. I think he was usually with his brother. He was simply a wonderful person whom you liked the first time you met him. May God comfort you as much as possible at this trying time. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Ann, Mitzi and Marti, so sorry for your loss. Rick and I were not aware of Wayne's passing in time to attend the Celebration of Life service. We will always remember his wonderful smile and personality. He was always so kind and friendly. I know while he is free from suffering, that freedom created a terrible hole in your heart. You and your family will be in our prayers in the weeks and months ahead. Heaven gets sweeter all the time. Love to all of you, Rick and Connie Hill

Dear Ann, Mit and Marti, Wayne was the best husband, father and friend. God put us next door to you to learn about Southern Love. It's inexplicable and undeniable and he taught it well.
My thoughts and prayers are for you and the girls.
Much love, Jo
