Wayne and I were best friends when we were children. Wayne was 2 weeks older than I was. In 1st grade both Wayne and I had a severe crush on the same girl, Marylou Sanchez. Wayne was of the kindest sort of people I have ever been blessed to have as a friend. As we grew older and his family moved to the southwest side of Chicago we spent less time together. We maybe were able to see one another once a month on weekends. It was a time I always looked forward to. I look forward to seeing him again when God resurrects him back here to enjoy life as it was meant to be. Wayne had many challenges during his life, but to me I feel that he overcame those challenges like a pro. I will miss him dearly. My prayers go out to his family and may Jehovah God comfort them during this distressing time.
