  1. I consider myself very lucky to have known Wayne. He was a great person who always went out of his way to help in any situation regardless of being asked first. Being his next door neighbor for over 10 years I got to know him and his family well and was impressed with how he made me and my wife feel like part of the family. I will always remember his smile, sense of humor and love for his family. I can still hear the sound of his keys jingling as he would walk up the driveway coming home from work and stopping to greet my cat who loved him as much as we all did. I will miss the good conversation and the Saturday morning breakfast at the beach. He will be sorely missed and will be in our hearts forever.

  2. To The Family: I was one of those with you when your husband and father passed away. I know you didn’t hear it, but a choir was rehearsing nearby and beautiful music was filling the air. My deepest condolences and prayers are with you. I just wish so much that there was more we could have done.
