Charlotte ,we are so sorry for your lost. Maryann and I would have came to the funeral, but we have to come to New Orleans Sunday since I have to go to Ochsner Monday morning to get pain blocker shots in my back. You are welcome to come see us anytime, just call to see if we are going to be home. Uncle Bill and Aunt Maryann

I didn't know Mr. Wayne before his illness but his faith and positive spirit throught out it touched my heart .... May the arms of Our Lord bring you strength and comfort during this difficult time. I pray the memories will replace your tears of sorrow sooner rather than later
