To the family, my heartfelt condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that God promises to soon end our suffering. God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things (will) have passed away.”(Rev. 21:1-5). May these promises from God give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.

Very sorry to hear about Wayne. I will remember the many times he joked and laughed and told funny stories. He spoke a lot about his love for family especially his grandchildren. He worked hard, I think, too hard maybe but he seemed to enjoy it. He will be missed by many. But I know he's in a better place where there is no suffering. May God Bless all the family and keep you safe.
